Woke up to this!

FFFFFFOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGGGGGG



For reference, this is what it usually looks like.



Also, towards Springs/Meadows/Jumeirah Islands...



Just wish I hadn't left my pool access card in work so I could get up on the roof and take some pics of the tallest block.

I love the first picture.

Today, on my way in I saw something I haven't seen before: a 'band' of fog around 25m up. Perfectly clear above and below it. The band was moving really fast too.

Not sure it is related, but the band was at exactly the same height (and ran in same direction) as the power lines.
