Even today it rained for 3 hours. Mysore Road was a mess and was stuck for hours. Most roads inside the city are 'unmotorable'. What have we done to deserve such pathetic state of affairs? Can't one party save us?

All the vagaries of monsoon was on full display yesterday in Bangalore. What started off as "It might rain" in the morning , turned out to be a " No it won't" sunshine by afternoon. At 4.00PM it started pouring and went on for a continuous 2 hours. By the time i left office by around 5.30, the length of road between IIM upto Vega city mall had waist deep water. We were stuck at this road, hardly moving for close to an hour, when some one told us to turn back as it was not possible to go on. This is precisely when a lady in "L" board VW Polo decides to burn the clutch. So someone asks her to come out, reverses the car for her and clears the road, 1 hour wasted. So i decided to totally ditch city roads and headed towards NICE road to link to Tumkur road. After much difficulty reached the toll entrance to NICE road when i was told that due to watter logging it was closed and asked to take alternate route to avoid it. Somehow managed it after some off roading and bottom scrapping. Overall 4 hours to reach Tumkur road from the time i left office.

PS : As i reached IMTMA exit at Tumkur road, it was totally dry. It never rained in that part. Welcome to Bangalore.

The past 3-4 days have been gloomy and cold. Light drizzles for the past 3 days and heavy rain as of now.
I'm put up in North Bangalore.

It has been raining non stop for the past hour and doesn’t seem to relent. The intensity is quite high.

I am at South Bangalore.

It’s such a dampner for an already damp Deepavali fest.

Managed to do puja of all the cars today in the morning before the rain starts. Assuming it will rain little, took my 1960 Ambassador for a long drive along the Bangalore Airport road and rained heavily for so long. Enjoyed the drive more, nevertheless.

TBhpians in and around Chennai, Pondy, Cuddalore and nearby areas; please be safe and prepared for the impending Nivar crossing.

It's been raining cats and dogs from yesterday night in Chennai. The cyclone was supposed to cross the shores today evening, but apparently it's now speculated to cross only tomorrow early mornings. I'm getting all memories of 2015 floods, and hope this cyclone turns out to be a less impactful one.

Hope everyone stays safe, and manages to take necessary precautions such as stocking milk powder, food, filling up water in tanks, and so on.

Cheers!

It looks as if Cuddalore took the hit, with anticlimax for Chennai. Although rainfall over the previous day was enough to celebrate anyway.

But... Never turn your back on a Cyclone until it's truly and really gone!

Chennai residents have started parking their cars on flyovers to avoid a repeat of the 2015 floods, that had damaged most cars.

hey, I spotted your black Amby just after the Airport toll, I think. It was stopped by the side of the road and someone was cleaning it with a cloth. If it wasn't you, then someone else with an immaculately maintained Amby.

Hmmm... Mixed feelings about this.

Frankly, at first, I thought it was a good idea. Holiday declared, not going to be obstructing traffic, but on second thoughts, when a Cyclone is expected? Wind speeds over 100kph were being spoken of. Flying cars, anyone?

No thanks. I don't want that to be my car, and I don't want to be hit by someone else's.

Why do people have no clue about the power of wind?
