Delhi got hit with a massive storm Friday in the hours before we all headed home from work. There was tons of rain and the wind was intense. I was in a meeting room at the office during the worst of it and I was ready to jump away from the windows on a minutes notice.

The rest of my team was smart and decided to grab a bite to eat and a drink before facing the traffic after work, but I was still feeling a bit jet lagged and just wanted to head home. My mistake. The trip that normally takes 25 minutes took over an hour and 45 minutes. Many roads were flooded and trees were down all over. Even with a very aggressive drive we just crawled home.
I finally made it home and was planning to catch up on the email I missed at work because the internet was down and then relax for the rest of the evening. However, I arrived home to a very dark house - the power was out and it stayed that way for hours. I finally gave up and went to be early - probably the best thing I could have done for my tired body.
The pictures above are from Sunday early afternoon and were taken just a half a block from my flat. Trees are still blocking the roads and causing traffic hold ups even this many days since the storm.
I just can't get enough of Adele - I love her voice. Here's her "Right as Rain." I know I've felt exactly this way on occasion:
Who wants to be right as rain
It's better when something is wrong
You get excitement in your bones
And everything you do is a game
