Well, as far as I remember there are quite a few times when I had to change my plans due to the weather. Whenever this happens it is really frustrating situation, and I want to forget that moment as soon as possible.
A couple of years back, my cousin who is from Norway came to my home. It was my birthday on that day and we were enjoying this get together. In the morning, we went to watch a movie and in the afternoon we had lunch in a nearby restaurant. We decided to go to the hill station on the very next morning.
In the evening, we were sitting in the guest room. I saw black clouds in the sky and strong wind was blowing. Soon, heavy rain started pouring. I thought that it would stop soon, however, this did not happen. The rain lasted for more than 4 hours.
Soon after rain stopped, news started flashing on the TV that there had a landslide in the hilly area where we had planned to go and there is a heavy traffic jam on the highway. It shattered our plans. My father pulled out his plan and on the next day, we stayed at home and enjoyed. We were really disappointed but it was not our hands to control the weather.
Here is the list of the latest cue cards which are released every four months.
