Wake me up when September ends

This is probably the first time I have seen entire August passing by with no sunshine. The monsoon usually ends by August 15. But I doubt it would stay that way during September. Be prepared for scorching heat next month. And while you are gulping that soda, do ponder over this. We received rains pretty late this season, and monsoon stayed longer than usual. Does that mean winter would also come late, and harsher? Are we on the verge of a major climate change?

    Umar, this is exactly what Al Gore talks about in his new movie “An Inconvenient Truth” — highly recommended.

    Well guys! You all know about global warming, climates are being changed all around the world. Just sit back and relax and watch what almightly Allah have in mind for the planet earth! (Just pray it may be good)

    Wesay we all love raining, Apart from the loss of precious lives, Barish is still a Naimat form Allah, we must appriciate and be thankfull. Regarding the aftereffects of the rain, it ONLY because of the people here, the messed up projects and the dug-up roads, tangled-up electrical wires.

    Just look at us, we say “Oh God! give us rain” and when it rains we say “Oh God! What is this!”, when it don’t shine we want sun and when it is sunny we say its so hot. I mean what are we and what do we want!!! that’s a question everyone should think about, which in the macro-terms could build up a vision and thought of a all as a nation.

    There’s more or less a defined climate pattern in Karachi though no particular time for the rains or rather the rainy day to come. April/May and part of June is terrible heat – the first summers, July August is all cloudy and windy, followed by the September warming up and October the peak of second summers.

    Anyone ever notice that the long rainy season i.e. that goes on for a couple of weeks at least always starts on these dates 30, 31 or 1st of either June, July or August. Strange.

    I believe winters will come in earlier and cooler than usual.
