Once again with downpour!

Once again water entered home last night due to another heavy rain stroke the Chennai city. We didn’t anticipate such heavy rainfall after the second week of November’s downpour – that almost flooded the Chennai city, and met. Dept was also certain that heavy rain is not possible unless there’s a low pressure in Bay of Bengal. But still we received heavy rainfall because of the air circulation or pulling up of air by the low pressure in Arabian Sea (according to the met. Dept), although it had disappeared now, there’s a trace of low pressure in the southern bay which perhaps trigger rain in one or two days if it further moves northeast. It was pretty quick this time that the water level around our home touched the doorstep within an hour of rain and as usual, the sewage was the first to rose inside followed by the footsteps of flood water. Lol

Once again having an holiday at the upper portion of the house, with water receding slowly and food coming from my aunt’s home in next street, it was a feel better situation right now as we used to this already. Just only four days back we climbed down to home and now with another replay waits ahead.  We are in perplex whether to climb down again or not with the weather condition been unstable here, and with the trace of new low pressure and warning of raining throughout the state, we’re yet to decided to do what only tomorrow. Glad there was electric and I was able to connect to internet Wi-Fi to make a post on the condition we go through. Though I really don’t want to write post on this and also not want to make a friend feel bad about declining the invite to home during this time. I just write to let know others what’s happening at this side. Will catch up with blogs once got down...

We didn't have much rain here during the last one-and-a-half days. I am glad the sun is out now :)

I like how you thought of things to be thankful for even in this flooding. Electricity, wifi, friends. Just hang in there. Flood waters always recede!

I wonder why the authorities are so lax in devising permanent solutions to the recurring flooding.Hope situation will be under control soon.

Just be sure to stay safe. I am hoping the water recedes more and things improve.

Oh dear, too much rain will give stress instead of joy.
I hope you will be safe and dry always. Take care Jeevan.

Hello Jeevan. I have been away for over a year as I was nursing my sick husband who died at home last Dec. 19 I have missed your posts so much because your life seems exotic to me. I plan to slowly get back to blogging, maybe once a week. I don't seem to have as much energy as I used to.
