We had what is called and ‘electrical storm’ in Bahrain tonight. It came out of nowhere, really. Window panes rattled, trees shook and television went off air. This is a rare occurrence in this country but it does happen. I have not, however, heard thunder for a long time and tonight wasn’t an exception. The rain, too, did come down but it was a sharp, brief shower that, at best, will make the car cleaners’ job a little tougher tomorrow morning. It was some kind of a relief, though, from the regular kind of day. And it had probably delayed the impending summer a wee bit.
