Another deluge. Water in the house, about a foot, all the rooms.
At this rate I will perfect the art of singing oh la dee, oh lah da life goes on...
Which is what I sing at times like these.
We’re ok now.
Again, something told me to “move!” and I did.

Too much of a good thing is also bad .... I think people are now accustomed to facing this atleast once or twice in the monsoon every year.

shiv- it happened too early,and last time there was the municipal corp to blame, not enough done; but this time despite all the kings' horses and all the kings' men, the same situation. It just rushed in.

mystic-:) lalala and life goes on! :)

Worst part is that the mobile networks went down. Couldn't call home or v. imp. ppl that I was supposed to. (*said in the same tone as "Sorry teacher, the dog ate not just my homework, but my uniform too.") :-)

Good to know all is well.
PS: My dad had chosen a good location to move when he bought this house -- on a hillock/slope where water never reaches even waist-height. :-)

what a wise "something." how do you tell such a wet story with such a sunny disposition?
oh, and good song, sure beats whatever was in my head before:)

heheh portia-just you wait till I'm having one of my funky mood outs, I'm blueer than the blue moon, eh.
two months of the very wet, may as well laugh, no?
