    The pictures are from my 13 hour trip from Dubai to Muscat. This journey is one that I make once a month at least for work, and normally takes around 4.5 hours... Add a little rain to the mix and it gets a lot more interesting :big grin:

    Enjoy the pics:

    Hydrolocked car again...

    120 km/h in this weather? You must be mad... more like 100!! Alternatively, keep right and use a boat....

    Uhmmm... Oncoming side of the highway is empty and cars are being turned back and coming the wrong way down the highway! Must be something big ahead!

    The cars were turning back but the 4x4's push on...

    [​IMG]

    Check out the water coming through the rims!

    [​IMG]

    Cars take the high road, 4x4's & trucks take the empty road :big grin:

    [​IMG]

    The big one just past Sohar Roundabout - half way to Muscat

    [​IMG]

    The big flood at Sohar... No way through...

    [​IMG]

    HEAVY rain

    [​IMG]

    Big truck pushing through the big flood... Police still aren't letting 4x4 SUV's through

    [​IMG]

    Helicopter circling over the highway further ahead...

    [​IMG]

    Police use bulldozer to rescue truck driver from swept away truck

    [​IMG]

    Well, Plan-A, the highway is a no-go. Family looked on Google Earth and found two roads closer to the beach that were a possibility. The Plan-C beach road is clearly washed away... luckily the Plan-B road is still intact!
