he weather is kind of crazy in Lahore right now. Either it’s so hot that you don’t want to do any­thing except flop down in an air con­di­tioned room

some­where and just veg­e­tate or its “thun­der­storms and light­en­ing – very, very fright­en­ing,” (yes, low pres­sure builds up because of the heat, attract­ing thun­der­storms with rains or dust storms and high winds depend­ing on the situation) – the other day (Fri­day, June 17, 2011) we were wad­ing in lit­er­ally liters of rain water on the road(s) on our way to work for exam­ple.

Fun­nily enough, the prob­lem was most acute where they had repaired the drains or installed new drains on the roads! We were in Cav­alry Grounds when Adnan decided to take a photo to com­mem­o­rate the occa­sion. He even saw a kid swim­ming in a side lane full of pud­dles! Sigh.

DHA, Cav­alry Grounds, and Gul­berg were lit­er­ally sub­merged in rain water. How­ever, the Canal Road was fine…it took me ages to drive through bumper to bumper traf­fic. It kind of ruined my day…

By the way, is there a co-relation between hot weather and pro­cras­ti­na­tion?  What do you think?
