Rainy Days.

"Fiery" and "Burning Heat" yesterday afternoon and then just before 6.00pm dark clouds started looming in the heavens and all of a sudden, heavy rainfall and thunderstorm breaks out with flash floods forming fast and furious as predicted. I personally drove through flood waters with my passengers along Cambridge Road and Truro Road. It has been a very, very long time since the last time I remembered driving through flood waters but, honestly, I secretly enjoyed the thrill and adventure.

The change from feeling extreme heat to nice and cool weather was just awesome. The sudden change in the weather was unbelievably quick, its like gently turning to the next page when reading the newspaper. Anyhow, as usual when the rain comes, heavy traffic jams started appearing here, there and everywhere. Driving in these miserable conditions can be rather hectic with rain water often getting into the cab when passengers board and alight most times with wet umbrellas. After and hour or so, I decided to hang out at a nice cosy coffee shop and enjoy a hot cup of 'kopi' whilst waiting for the rain to subside a bit before I start working again.

During recent days, it was raining almost everyday and worst of all it had to happen most of the time during the evening 'peak' hours between 5.00pm to 8.00pm when passenger traffic is normally huge. Today's weather will likely be the same but for me, I will not be working this evening because I will be enjoying myself at a MBS theatre watching the "Jersey Boys" concert.
