Guess we Bangloreans have been really good. The rain gods might give in to our prayers yet again. Its become real cloudy with some strong cool breeze in Jayanagar. Hope it rains as I am getting out of work.

Rained in Langford Road about an hour and a half ago. But Jayanagar is as dry as Gujarat! :(

Weather is awesome though

@ Luke,

It was my good old Sony DSC-H9. Got my memory card empty, looked for higher ground, put the cam on burst mode and clicked away. Took about 800 or 900 pictures to get the few i uploaded.
