Lol -- and I thought I was the only unlucky one! I was tempted to wash it again today, but gave up on the idea as I didn't want to waste water.. and lo! its been pouring since late evening.

I had been to Wonderla yesterday, Fortunately it didnt rain all day except few drizzles in evening.

However when we start at 8PM from Wonderla, it started raining. It was raining througout the way to Home. There were few places of water log on highway, however traffic was flowing. It was very very heavily near Kengeri.

Things went ugly after rajarajeshwari temple. Chok-o-block traffic till Bull Temple.

Man, after the rains yesterday evening & almost the whole night, I took out my Gypsy for the office commute. And now it is clear & just bits of cloud here & there.
I wish it rains Bulldozers & JCB's to make this worthwhile :-)

Unhappy Re: It's raining in Bangalore!!

Oh man it hasn't rained like this in ages. My street is flooded and the mucky water is finding its way into my house's porch. Oh my poor cars!

Oh man it rained so heavily today! Rather than looking ahead on the road, I had kept a constant eye on the trees! At times it was so scary to drive too. BBMP for sure will have one heck of a work to do after this downpour.

Ohh man, you might've been praying for no rain for next one year I guess.
Cheated the rain today .. Wanted to drive in the rain and took out the Baleno instead and man it rained really heavy. I didn't even take out the Scorp today.

I dared the rain gods today by washing my car!
Well, if i need to go out today or tomorrow, I will take my wife's car.
Lets see what Monday holds then!

The clouds have suddenly cleared and Sun God is back in business, well big-time with all his might. I happened to go through the Rain Bridge Underpass (ORR) near Alpine Eco this morning around 7am. There was BMTC bus and around half a dozen cars which broke down due to water clogging issue. I somehow managed to cross the mess unharmed with my puny little car.
