Tip Tip Barsaa Paani.....

YAYYYY!!!! It finally rained in this desert!
It started with severe lightning and thunderstorms yesterday afternoon. Out fire alarm started yelling... It's not used to this you know... It needs some burning HOT sun... Sudden lightning and thunderstorms are not acceptable... So it yelled, cried, screamed like a baby for a full 45 minutes!
My ears were gone for a toss after that. I tried in vain to stop it, but nopes! It just would not budge. It kept the fire department people busy for atleast 30 minutes before relenting!
That's all you can expect.. Now come on it's 105+ from the past 2 months and suddenly out of the blue it starts raining like that... Anybody will get scared and start crying... Yes! Including the fire alarm!
Today morning. Woke up for the first time in 4 months without sweat in my hair! I was infact feeling cozy and comfortable in my bed, thanks to a cool night :). The morning looked beautiful! My coffee actually became a little less warm when I stood in the balcony sipping it! Generally it becomes more hot ;-) That is at 7 in the morning!
Finally the umbrella which I had carried and come from India for emergency situations like this came into use ;-) Opened it and "stylishly" walked to the car holding it :D I felt so nice then... Though I feel stupid right now... ***blushes***...
My car was washed in the "car-wash" just last week. But then, some crows found it very attractive to put their "mark" on it just after the wash.. And so it was there all these 4 days.. But now after this rain.. Everything is gone! Actually now thinking back, the car looks much much cleaner now than after the car-wash thingy! Nothing to beat "natural-stuff" huh?
Was in full josh in office... Generally because of the excessive heat... It drains out all the energy in me.. And I feel so tired at office. But today.... I was so happy, cheerful, energetic.. Whatnot! I am amazed what a little shower can do to your day to day life....
So I know I am blabbering... But then I am happy... I am happy that it rained.. I am happy that I got drenched in the rain yesterday.. I am happy that I walked to office with an umbrella in hand... I am happy that I am happy...
Yes!Yes!Yes! It's still drizzling slightly.... God... Let this go on forever...:) Do I even need to mention that I love rains?

I disengaged the fire alarm in our kitchen.. guys cooking na.. so :)

Shark,

You have reminded me of Mysore now. I used to love the city in rains! I would just go out for a walk whenever it rained!

Now, in Chennai, it doesn't rain. And I hate it whenever it rains here! The city just gets so smelly and dirty that I just hate going out in the rain here!

Hardu said...

Ofcourse you had to like rain as I don't like it. Its been raining here as well an I am unhappy!

Viky said...

Amazing how the rains cheers you up, no?

shark said...

@wb: Not sure "Exactlly" what happened. I am guessing there was a short circuit in one of the buildings because of the lightning and stuff.

@pavan: Ah! Clever :P "visiting"..any place is fine! But if you have to "stay".. then you will know ;-)

@adi: Ayyo don't remind me of rains in Chennai! It's yukkkk!

@hardu: he..he.. :D

@viky: It surely cheered me up :D

Hiren said...

I too am happy when it rains but not in winters.

WinterBlue said...

Besides rain, there are other thing which makes women cheer up
;-)))

1) Shopping
2) Gossip
3) Candle light dinners
4) Flatters

;-)

Sudhakar said...

Finally.. some rain in TX, nice to hear that..

shark said...

@wb: You are bang on target man! :) I hope P reads this and "implements" it..;-)

@sudhakar: yes!:)

WinterBlue said...

You mean Mr. P doesn't take you out for dinner? Shopping most men do not like to be a part as women end up spending (wasting???;-)) more time than actually required. Gossip!!! No comments... :)))))

shark said...

@wb: Oh! P does all this :D (except ofcourse Gossip!! That's womens' area of expertise.. and men have no chance in that!)
But I didn't want to admit it! Lest it goes into his head and he stops doing them....

By the way.. I am very curious.. Do you know P? or Me? Personally?You seem to ask lots of questions about him **thinks**

WinterBlue said...

Nopes! I do not know you and/or 'P'... Apologies if I have been too inquisitive about your relationship/friendship.

shark said...

@hiren: Join the gang! (Sorry I had missed your comment earlier)

@wb: hey! No hard feelings.. I was just curious, that's all.
