It is raining in Lahore. Finally.
I took a stroll a few minutes ago to determine what the weather is like on the last Friday of January twenty ten. And the verdict? Fantastic! We finally have a breeze in Lahore, and not some weak ‘ruffle-some-papers’ breeze, a true-blue winter breeze that demands sweaters and makes trees physically sway side-to-side.
Now, a humble request to the Weather Department in the sky; what us Lahoris would really appreciate is some rain showers. To be specific, as I am aware there were some parts that received some drizzle action last night–we would like some proper downpour. You know, like Islamabad got some and everyone knows Lahore is way cooler–so spread the love! *grin*
Well dear readers, these are some of the clearer photos I was able to capture for you earlier this morning. I hope they get the point across–as they say–’a picture is worth a thousand words’. :)

With temperatures averaging around 42 degree centigrade, Lahore’s experiencing its hottest times of the year. And if sun’s not taunting enough, loadshedding will make you cry for sure! :P
It is really interesting how artists and copy writers pick, from the changing social fabric of a society, ideas for creative writing. The day before yesterday, I saw an advertisement from Servis Shoes titled ‘Loadshedding Sale’ with amazing discounts on a complete range of shoes at their stores.
Maybe loadshedding is not that bad; especially when someone’s talking about shedding the load of sky-high price tags. So, head for it. *toot parro!*
It is the weather of Lahore that gives the city that tangy flavor.
More like Forrest Gump and his box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get.
