All changes in weather is due to global climate change ...

Regarding muddy roads, well this surprise me too, such a TOP NEWS in the world about QATAR but really sorry to say it's still not upto that standard, they have to improve the Roads and Public works/ Municipality departments to improve the quality of roads and pavements.. i remember Abu Dhabi n Dubai was same in early 80's and now you see the difference ...

Where have the streets turned to mud? I've seen mud on streets but not streets turn to mud. Sorry for that Asian chap who got knocked over by a speeding car. It is rough for walkers (slippers is closer to the mark). I feel sorry for them. Is there a way to change this feeling into action by helping these poor souls?

Why is the rain later this year? Last winter, it was in December.

Lucky for you, your compound could be flooded with the overflow of excrement, because the overflow of water is greater than the size of the sewer pipes. So quit crying about the rain and the mud. Enjoy the weather, because is once a year and is nature.

Rain is really screwing life in Qatar. When it rains in a country after 8 to 9 months, people get happy, but when it rains every now and then they think why did i get happy coz this is really makin my life like a hell.

Always at home, dirty roads, people playing with their cars by splashing the dirty water on the people walking on the roads.. These things happen here...

nah, first it hapens to ur buddy. before you finish laughing at him you are already half way down. then somebody takes the ball, goes to score, tries to shoot, loses balance and finds himself going into the goal.
