No rains around Whitefield and Marathalli.

Could it be because these are the only places which seem to have some green cover remaining?

I experienced a light drizzle near cubbon park while returning from office and the weather is very cool. It sure has rained or is raining in some parts of city. The sky is also overcast...

I'm in Jayanagar. It rained very heavily here. Awesome awesome awesome!

We had dinner outside after a long time. It was simply splendid being outside hearing the rain and seeing the raindrops splash on the ground!

It was a disappointing drizzle all the way from C V Raman Nagar to Hebbal. Wish it really pours.

Saw too many two-wheelers skidding and falling. If it pours, at least they won't take a risk riding - I hope.

Just now came back from Martahalli to Banaswadi via the ORR and yes it was raining pretty good and me too saw lots of two wheelers hitting the dirt !

The slight drizzle it seems bring out the oils that have crept in to the cracks in the tar ....very dangerours for two wheelers

What a disappointment! Truck is dirtier than before thanks to only a drizzle. And the day is as hot as it was 2 days ago.

I also want to add that my morning walk in Banashankari Park was great today, what with those showers that fell last night. The weather was very conducive for a walk today morning. Yes, it is back to being hot now.

And this is the first rain in Bangalore this year. That is whole 71 days after the new year. It rained slowly for at least couple of hours in this part of Sarjapura Road.
The smell of rain is huge. And today is quite humid and thus Bangalore can expect more rain hopefully this week.
Wish you all a rainy weekends

I too faced some drizzle in ORR betwrrn Marathahalli and KRpuram. I was thrilled to use the wiper coz Bangalore wanted this rain badly. I dont want bangalore to transform into another Chennai or Kolkata.

It should remain as it was the Cool City.

I had gone over to my mechie's place to pick up my Jawa twin after a good overhaul. Even though it was drizzling, I was desperate to get my hands on her. The problem with a very light drizzle is, the roads get quite slippery, since the Oil is not washed off, but sticks on. Checked my shoes and silencers this morning, and they were covered with greasy muck.

But the weather was brilliant for riding. Absolutely enjoyed doing 100 kmph quick throttle sprints now and then.

Oh man. It really is raining cats & dogs these evenings in Bangalore for past 3-4 days.

Am loving it, looks like the monsoon has hit early and well.

This means just one thing -- time to get the Gypsy out....
