Winter delayed

I read in the news today (sorry no link, it was paper) that winter season in Karachi will start one week later than usual. Now I didn’t know that seasons follow a fixed schedule in Karachi, as any day can be summer, autumn, monsoon, or winter. So it turns out that there won’t be any chilly mornings for a while. Perhaps the winter season is afraid of the so-called virus?

On a serious note, I made an observation back in August that monsoon started late and it poured like anything, and we might get harsher winters. Is my prediction coming true? Be prepared for tough time this new year, just in case.

    heh. i’m sitting here in my study on this dry nov 2 afternoon without even the fan switched on. I can see its pretty hot outside but its really cool inside. i was actually thinking of taking out my winter clothes this weekend!

    the situation here is a bit tricky…turning on the AC makes me feel cold and turning off makes me prespire. so what i’m doing is turning it on for 15-20 mins n then off for 5-10 mins till i start feeling warm. although this might not be good for the health of both of us(AC n me) but right now i don’t have any other solution.

    well i’d like the weather to be a bit more cold so that i can get rid of this ONing and OFFing of the AC. beside that i love walking in a chilly evening against a cool breeze.

    Ah guys, I really miss the times in Karachi when Winter wasnt really winter and I was so passionate about it, that I used to look for the quilts and blankets in as early as October! Please don’t laugh :P. I was a kid then :)!

    oh come on guys, even during dec. and jan also the temp doesnt even comes close to freezing point, what kind of winter you are talking about, we have a flurries here on the day of Eid and it was shivering cold.
    I would say that the weather in Khi is the best as compared to other cities not tooo hot and not tooo cold.

    I stepped out of my office on the airport tarmac at 3 30 am and my arms and neck nearly froze it was soooo chilly. Then there s a hint of morning fog which is again more prominent near the open spaces of the airport infact starts to show once we cross Karsaz in the early morning hours. Winters are definitely here.
    By the way Karachi did reach freezing on New Year’s eve of 1990-91. I personally experienced it as I was out the whole night at a concert.
    For those of you with AC problems set the thermostat to around 5 or 6 on a window type or 27 28 on a split. You wont need to switch it on and off.
