  Rain clouds forming among the mountains, Oman

This is really an irony but true. According to statistics, more people die in Oman due to floods than due to the desert ! This is because sudden heavy rain can cause severe flood because the shallow wadis (rivers) and drainage system were not built to handle such an event. As such, do travel carefully in Oman in the event of heavy rain.
