A chilly August in Blantyre

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Its rather strange to have chilly weather in August in Malawi. Normally we are supposed to have hot and windy weather. Just yesterday, we had rain drizzles in Limbe. Surprisingly, Blantyre Central Business District was very cold but not wet.

I stay in Chigumula in Limbe and am enduring the chilly weather of Thyolo. Nights are very cold and we have rain drizzles now and then. A very strange August indeed! I guess we are now facing the effects of global warming. Common sense tells us that global warming is not a myth. It reminds me of what Lisa said in the Simpsons "The Movie".

On another note, with the reconstruction of the Chipembere highway, driving through this road is 'hell on earth'. One has to be extremely cautious. It seems the the contractor, Shimz, is serious with the construction work. Obviously, the road will transform Blantyre. This is what we need and not petty politicking in our Parliament. A Bingu woyee!!!

The weather for us here in UK for August has been awful, wet and chilly and autumnal.

We are feeling cheated out of any proper summer this year :(

@ladybanana: It seems there is a global phenomenon in climate change. It should serve as a wake-up call to the human race to avoid its own destruction in the near future! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
