The way back..

We had unexpected rains and should confess it caught us unaware. Not that it really matters. We always think every raining season that by next shower we should be better equipped. It started to be very cloudy since Tuesday afternoon, by evening it started drizzling. I think it started heavy pouring by night.

By the time we got up, it was pouring! The sight of the sky so open always catches me in wonder. I was standing there for a while enjoying the scene of the water coming down without constrain. Then I had to force myself to carry on with the work to get the boys to day care as I have office. We dropped them at the school and I hurried to office. Hubby dear was asking me couple of times if he should drop me, but I said I will go myself.

It was simply wonderful, the feeling that comes riding through the rains with rain drops so harsh that I couldn't even see. I prayed my bike shouldn't give up on me. I managed to reach office in one piece. As expected we didn't have power. The day passed with most of the time talking about the rains and managing to get the work done.

The way back was even more dramatic than expected. Tree along the roads were down the traffic was slow. Worse or best part of the whole thing was, it was so windy. I couldn't ride and felt I was going back. Wind that blew was so severe that I felt so chill and my knees were shaking! My teeth were chattering and eyes were drozy. I managed to reach home without knowing how I managed to ride all the way back...

The rest of the world may think of rains as a nuisance, but not a soul in chennai would do that :)
Its always welcome, though it does make the roads nasty and render so many homeless.
