I think the planners definitely sorted this one out ahead of time, but tonight a massive thunderstorm hit the Burj Dubai, now complete with its spire on top at a bit over 2,000 ft. Don't worry - all of the lights are still on. But man - every bolt of lightning went straight for the top of that thing. I got a couple of shots of it, but it ended up as a picture of a big white, well, picture.
Almost more entertaining than watching the lightning on my way home was taking my Toyota Yaris through 3 feet of standing water. I'm a little more reckless with my rental car than some - there were Ferraris reversing on the main highway to avoid going through big puddles. "How'd you total your Ferrari? Oh, I was trying to avoid getting it wet." Smooth move.
My dad has said he wants the scratch and sniff blog up and running quickly. To that, I say - imagine what happens when a city with no sewer system floods. Ewwwwwww. And yes, you CAN smell it 300 ft up. Iym typeeeng wit won hyand while Iee hold meee nyose...
Okay, so maybe an OPTIONAL scratch and sniff feature? You're right - sometimes "the next best thing to being there" is better than being there.
