Rain and Meteo – Is it time to declare moonsoon à Maurice?

So it was all sunny at work, but it had to be raining when I reached St. Julien d’Hotman. Unbelievable fog on top of that from St Julien d’Hotman – l’Unité – St Julien Village. Never have I seen such a fog in this region. 8 pm, my windshield wipers were used up, they didn’t clean the water well. Though it was a mild shower, I could barely see the end of the road. My bi-halogen projector headlights were covered with dust or grease from the days my car stayed at the mechanic… Should have cleaned them I knew…

Saw my friend’s 1970 car right in front of me. Ah good, he’ll show me the way. But at 25kph, I’m going to stay here so much longer. I decided to overtake, it always feels good to do so. Now the even harder part. Used my memory of the years I drove this road to determine where the road was, each time braking when a vehicle approached in front with blinding headlights…

Finally I reached Lallmatie, the rain hadn’t stopped. Put on the TV, there was meteo, “the weather will be cloudy in the east tonight.” Yes, that’s  how precise even current events can be reported by local meteo…
