This is a Hybrid Summer, so to Say ! This is because of the fact that this year the summer has no Nor ‘wester cyclones ( I won’t say that all as bad always ! ). The bouts of gusty wind with rainfall is happening even from the early morning ! Rainfall is being witnessed all through the day and night.
So these are not the special characteristics of a Summer as I have experienced from my childhood just half a century back !
Pure absence of Nor’ wester cyclones spanning over around an hour or two in the afternoon are all evident this summer. People of those days would generally keep indoor, cancel all their trips beyond their villages because of this reason that they would be in danger outside of their houses ! This is one positive side I must admit. Lot of disruptions and dangerous situation would be created for this .
For example, if one goes out of his house what will be the problems ? In the first place people generally avoid leaving their homes after 12.00 noon for some valid reasons. The atmosphere becomes gruelingly hot and stuffy and people don’t feel happy to go out, just after lunch. They are tempted to take rest and a snap with a full stomach.
Those who are wary enough, they complete their tasks before the Nor’ wester hours even with the scorching sun over their head , rather to face Nor’ wester outside their ‘secured’ houses . People have learned from their experiences. A lot of people have faced problems in such situations as stated above. A lot have faced hailstorms, a quite few others have been thunder-struck and faced death !
So I won’t say Nor’ wester as a good phenomenon always. But the weather would cool down drastically after the Nor ‘wester and it would be cooler for a couple of days after.
