    i hope they’re keeping in mind the rain factor as they construct the new bridges and underpasses…..one would surely not want to drive through a flo0ded underpass:P

    monsoon rain is always welcome…and its beautiful. but this time just imagine, half the karachi is dug up, an underpass here, a flyover there, and darinage lines there etc. they cleaned some sewrage lines here…and the waste is left lying arnd the roads. and here comes the rain. *shudder*

    Anything that could cut out that scorching sunlight long enough! The heat is killing us! But heavy rain can surely create havoc. Light drizzling and cloudy weather is always welcome. Drive safely…

    Drizzle/moderate rain expected tonight and tomorrow morning as well.Karachi will be partly cloudy but not all over karachi.Where i get this forcast from is pretty accurate.A huge patch of clouds is over Arabian sea extending all over india, nearly escaping karachi.
