Mumbai skies this week

The week began with hazy skies that turned ominous as the hours passed

Ockhi the cyclone that had wreaked havoc in Kerala , was inching its way up the coast and Mumbai was a likely target .

On Tuesday morning I woke up to a grey and gloomy sky with poor visibility. The whole day we sat waiting for the storm to break and looked out at the dark and silent city . Schools and colleges were shut, the trains were running slow and several offices in town shut early.

“Don’t worry,” my chicken seller assured me when I was getting ready to stock up on eggs and bread, “it will soon pass “.

I wondered how he knew with certainty but realised that he had a satellite picture that was doing the rounds on WhatsApp.

For once the Met Dept proved right and the storm did pass.

And the sun came out in Mumbai’s sky again !

Enjoy the sunshine this weekend .

  1. Frankly, I was quite excited about the impending cyclone! Sadly, all my hopes of seeing some action out there were crushed… 😛
    I did love the fact that the temperatures dipped to an all time low (by Mumbai standards) and it was a pleasant day. But, also glad that Mr. Sun came out and spread His warmth! 😛
    Great pictures, Sunita!

    1. Really? Aren’t you scared of the howling winds and falling trees? I must say you are brave . And yes I loved the pakora weather and the clear skies thanks to the storm that never happened

  2. Lovely captures Sunita. Both the cloudy as well as clear sky. Ockhi did scare us, especially with schools shutting down there was bit of panic..but thankfully nothing happened.
