Rumours were astride on Social Media network that Abu Dhabi was having a snowfall. Photographs showing white snow were being plastered across all platforms. But alas it turned out to be hailstones. The white hailstones were gladly accepted as snow but on closer examination they were just that.
But it was windy, and cold and wet and the unusual weather was a welcome for those indoors but the people braving it on the roads had another story to tell. Snail-crawl traffic was all across the city caused by water logging and poor visibility forced schools to declare a half-day which further added to the chaos on the road.
