Just heard from our HR department that apparently, serious consideration is being given to declaring another public holiday in Dubai for tomorrow

Supposedly this is due to the weather, which is expected to worsen and make commuting even more of a nightmare tomorrow.

I can't believe they'd do that... would they? I guess if it's going to happen, they'll have to declare it within the next hour or so.

This is Dubai, anything is possible !!!

Perhaps they should put on an Abra service instead of the bus service in some area's

I wonder how my leak is getting on???

I'm off tomorrow anyway (my weekend is Weds-Thurs), but if it happens, hopefully I'll be entitled to claim a day in lieu for it

All the building sites must be a mare to work in, they should shut them down for safety reasons...

Sites I am overseeing have done no work today.

But plenty of paperwork keeps me busy in the office.

Considering the loss to business yesterday, I think it unlikely, but anything is possible around here!
