oh my!

we have a spring club trip staying in the hostel (yellow building that appears about 10 seconds in) (for those unfamiliar with the town, Basil lives many metres above that. on quite a steep slope). Don't think I'd be getting much sleep there tonight :(

Best of luck Basil.

I don't think anyone will be getting much sleep there for quite a while, Matt.  This is what it looks like today.

It's raining in Al Khobar, been threatening for days.

That explains the loud bangs i heard earlier, thunder, not Saudi driving.

According to the rain radar it's not raining here.

So why has it been pissing down for several hours and looks set in to continue for a while?

Radar probably got wet and stopped working properly.

My old uni has posted me out the alumni news letter. Two questions arise; firstly how did they get this address? I am pretty sure i haven't told them about it. Secondly of all the people who should know I didn't complete the phd I started why did they address it to dr Matthew?

To be fair - I think there are three questions here, the third being - "Have you got the right thread?"  :D

 :facepalm: i blame browsing on my phone.
