Its gettin hot in here




April and May have been killer months for us Indians, literally.

The death toll is at 500 and counting. Not a large number but then it is the cause that is depressing, we are undergoing a heat wave that has lasted most of two months now. The place i live in has recorded its highest ever temperature so far in May, 43 C was common enough for us in the summer but this year we have touched 45C and gone beyond it a bit.

In certain parts of the country people have been dropping like flies, mainly those engaged in manual labor out int he fields and mines. A jogger collapsed while i watched yesterday and a high flying business executive walked off an air liner out into the sun and fell dead.

Weather, has gone loco it would seem. Earlier days of April we were all !@#$%*ing about how unseasonal and early rains were no good and the mango harvest would be ruined. Now we be all pleading for a shower.

got to go now, need a shower.

And still we have idiot politicians scattered around the world denying climate change is a problem!

Its the wind farms stopping the wind that are causing the global warming.

2330 in todays papers. Monsoon has been delayed. Should have hit the south eastern coast couple weeks ago. Now we hear it should arive on 3rd June.

The roads are deserted. Car airconditioners are useless. Home cooling is barely effective. Those without cooling... god save them. Also i got a heat induced nosebleed yesterday. You know how rare it is for us to !@#$%* about the heat?

Night time temp here one day last week was 41C. Its all that concrete and tarmac giving off what it stored away during the day.

The old joke about frying an egg on a car roof, well turns out its possible, only not very sanitary and leaves a mark on the car.
