one thing that freaks me out during rain is bike guys.
I have seen numerous incidents and also been in an incident where bike guys slips and bangs into the car in front.

I found a huge army of two wheelers taking shelter under the flyover, and blocking almost the entire road.

Hate to say this, but the two wheelers are a real pain. Rain or no rain.

I experienced lots of rain today! Was driving from Jayanagar to BIAL and it started raining when I was near Vidhana Soudha and then the rain followed me almost till BIAL. Then, all of a sudden, it stopped. But before it stopped, it increased to an intensity seen very rarely. I had to drive at 30-40kmph with hazard lights on and wiper at max speed. And visibility was very poor.

I reached BIAL, picked up my sis and was coming back when the rain started again near Vidhana Soudha By the time I reached Jayanagar, it was really heavy rain but not as heavy as when I was driving on airport road.

Two-wheeler guys have the same opinion about Cars!

Its a never ending Love story.

Banashankari did not get much of showers yesterday, but I was driving around Silkboard/BTM at about midnight and it kept drizzling for quite a while.

Its hailing, there is ice flying everywhere in jayanagar. Caught a few using them as ice for my coke, hope the pollutants in the rain water dont kill me.....

Nothing beats the smell of the fresh earth after all the hot days that have been going on and on.
