Dont tempt me man - kerala in the rains is just splendid.
After all the rains in the evening I am just loving the early morning drive to office. The smell of mud, freshness, and ofcourse the cool breeze.

Don't forget the traffic jams. Took me 2 hours to drive back home from e-city today. Horrid traffic at Madiwala check post.

You are making everyone of us jealous man!

BTW, if pre-mansoon itself is like this, wonder how hard the rains would hit this time during the regular mansoon showers.

Everyday evening it is raining. Today and SUNDAY it was indeed raining cats and dogs. On sunday, me and my colleagues were at Nandi hills, while returning it was a RAINSTORM with very high wind speed. we could see some metal sheet compound walls and advertising boards getting blown away.

Today the Rain was very heavy, I started to my Office in White Field from Hosur, found very difficult to drive the car in dense rain, more over there were few trees fallen in Sarjapura road, Managed to reach Office in time and there was no rain in Whitefield.

Well, thanks to summer showers, I managed to harvest about 3.5K litres of rain water and looking at the weather man predictions, we have some more due this week. I hope to harvest enough so that I don't have to use my community borewell water for another 3 weeks.
