While the situation is not so painful as yet, we all know it's only the calm before the storm. So, as a follow up to my 'You know it's winter in the UAE when..' post, here's my take on when you know it's summer in the UAE (cringe)

1. You don't need to go to the beach to get a tan


2. You want to shower twice a day (with scalding hot water from cold water tap)


3. School's out! 


4. It's all melted errthing - lip balms, chocolate, face and more. 


5. Your car is a burn hazard - be it your door, steering wheel, gear or leather seats (good luck)


6. The need for H2o is so real, you even enjoy the occasional water sprinkler.


7. Guarantee you see lots of these.


8. And last but not the least, the humidity. Dubai becomes everyone's very own steam and sauna.

Enjoy the next few precious days till real summer gets here - stay hydrated, sunscreened and all that good stuff. What means summer in the UAE for you?
