Now the action starts in the eastern districts of Tamil Nadu. So Chennai get ready for lively action tonight.
===================================
No heavy rains happened any where in Tamil Nadu as rumored in whatsapp blah blah. Just because something is shown in TV or newspapers don't blindly believe them of forward them.

Chennai Rains - Expecting good action tonight
-------------------
See as soon as the monsoon winds slow down, the sea breeze front is seen moving freely. There is also heat related convergence happening inland and storms have formed around vellore belt. Its going to be a daily affair from now on. So busy days for me. Not only Chennai, all districts are going to get rains atleast for one or two day in next 1-2 weeks. There is a special post coming tomorrow by noon on the mind blowing August rains and upcoming awesome September.
