Signs that Fall has Arrived in Doha

1) You begin to consider turning on the hot water heater. You don't, but you think about it.

2) You think excitedly to yourself, "Pretty soon, maybe I'll be able to use the hot water tap for hot water and the cold water tap for cold water."

3) Your son steps outside in the morning, stands there and says, "It's so nice outside!" It's 98 degrees, but that's considered a cool, crisp fall morning here.

4) Your dog resumes spending the night outside, proving that it's cooling down slightly.

5) You can breathe when you are outside, since the humidity has almost gone back to bearable levels.

6) You start seeing Christmas decorations in the store. Oh, wait. No, those were there in April. And June. Scratch that last one.

Wow! It's really still that hot there? Does it get much cooler?

Wow, that's still very nice and toasty. Geez, even in the high heat of summer (and I use that term very loosely when speaking to people from Florida/Qatar...), we never make it up to 98, let alone now in fall. We're excited these days if it goes up to 68 during the day. Frost overnight is pretty much a given at this point, too.
