KUNA posted construction workers for both government and private construction projects are now working at night because of the scorching summer sun. This is great but the real question is, how much of construction working are working at night? is it 10% of total construction in Kuwait? 80%-100%? Makes a big difference.
I was just tweeting the other day, how I was walking from my car to the office only to realize my ice cream disappeared and I had a milkshake instead. It’s crazy hot, and this only makes it worse for the cleaners outside, please sympathise with them and help them in any way whether it’s a small tip or cold water. The only hotter spot ironically is called Death Valley, in California.
Last week the temperature reached 54C, which is a very common temperature in Kuwait, I’ve personally seen it go higher. It is so hot that you can literally cook an egg using nothing but sunlight (post). You can read more about Kuwait’s scorching hot temperature [here].
Next year, Kuwait will likely be announced as the hottest inhabitable country on earth.
This sandstorm hit me by total surprise, no news forecast was expecting it either. Combined with heavy thunder and rainfall it was a mix of seasons altogether. Twitter user Sadaqat shared this photo and I thought it was worth sharing, it almost looks as if weather was waging war on Kuwait. Good thing I’m traveling tomorrow.
There are tons of landscape photos of Kuwait out there and they’re no longer impressive for the most part. This one however, I liked because of the fogy-ness there is to it, something I rarely see in a wider perspective. With winter approaching this will be a common scene, didn’t know it looked this good from afar.

Nothing answers that question more accurately than a cooked egg on Kuwait’s street in the super sunny weather. Although I’m against wasting food this picture flawlessly depicts our weather situation. I found this photo on Facebook and am trying to find the photographer behind it but haven’t been able to yet.
I had the chance to stay at a suite in The Regency to review the place and I must say it had reached all my expectations. I’ve always visited the Regency’s ballrooms but never the hotel, turns out I was missing out on a lot. My idea of this review is to go through what you can do in a day at The Regency.
The room I was in is called the diplomatic suite, it’s a pretty big 110 square meter suite with one bedroom and a living room. It wasn’t all about the classy furniture, there were to screens including a 42 inch screen that was connected to a 3D bluray player. Every sport channel you can think of was available.

I like to believe Kuwait occasionally passes by 4 seasons in a day. Without doubt it has one of the most random weather forecasts out there. Yesterday we got a rainy weather, followed by a dusty one and then back to normal in 24 hours. What mystifies me is the consistency of having a dust storm strictly on weekends, as if the dust storms are scheduled.
