After the deep depression of last week that dumped heavy rain on Oman, green grass is now growing up from the desertic soil.
Look at this tasty grass in the province of Musandam in the north of Oman! A place where this kind of phenomenon is rare!
Along the coast of the Gulf of Oman, the climate is desertic and sunny all year-round.
There are a few winter rains, more likely in the far north, ie the Musandam Peninsula, an exclave of Oman in the United Arab Emirates.
These rare showers bring 15-20 millimeters of rain per month from December to March, nothing like what happened last week when Oman was flooded.
This area is very hot in summer, with highs around 37/38 °C on average, and the humidity of the sea makes the heat oppressive.

So who said that Oman was just a dusty desert with nothing but a few sand snakes and camels to keep you company?
