Evening showers in Bangalore

Bangalore has been getting heavy showers in the evenings. Yesterday around 5 pm it rained so heavily it looked like actual monsoon showers. The rain comes down suddenly. In Bangalore if it's pouring like mad in one place it could be as dry as parched land just 5 or 6 km away. The night now is cool with the sudden burst of rain. It is so refreshing to be on the balcony looking at the falling drops. The starless sky is illuminated intermittently by streaks of lightning.

  2. How I envy you!
    Chennai could do with some showers like that right now- we have been melting in temperatures that in the last week have been touching 42degrees C.
    "The starless sky is illuminated intermittently by streaks of lightning" - so well expressed, almost poetic.
