Rain Rain, Go Away....

As I was driving in the evening, I got stuck in a traffic jam, all I could see was a crowd of Hasidic Jews on the pavement and some on the road, as you can see in the picture there was a car with its boot open, I suspected it was a funeral, few minutes later I was in my car right next to the crowd but could not see what was in the car as it was surrounded by men, on my left there was another huge crowd but only of women and girls, some were crying, I could not take any more pictures as I thought it would be disrespectful.
I could hear the men chanting and it really did sound like Du3aa Muslim make during funerals, I asked one man if it was a funeral, he replied yes and came closer to my car, suddenly I was surrounded by many men in black all smiling and very friendly, they wanted to point out that the traffic jam was not due to them but to the broken down bus that you can see in the picture, I thought it was them but they were right, I had to wait ages until I managed to get past the bus right behind the funeral procession, most of the men followed the hearse for a while, then they just dispersed, I was stuck in that interesting jam for about 45 minutes.

Rain rain go away!, it has been raining non stop for weeks now and its supposed to be the summer!! we heard so many predictions that we were going to have a hot dry summer, well we are in July, its miserable, cold and very wet, goes to show that all these weather forecasts are nothing but predictions that most of the time mean nothing, I do not like very hot weather but do not like rain either, its just that living with all that rain makes our life here even more indoors, which can be quite boring, on the other hand when I was in Tunisia, I used to go to the Air Conditioned hotel room when ever the heat became too much, complaining about the weather is a very British past time, I suppose I have been living here too long :o)


Happy 4th of July to our American friends all over the world

Since june, whatever comes to Britain went on to Denmark a few miles westward. We have had exactly the same miserable weather as you!
Tomorrow we are supposed to go sailing, and I already now dread the cold, windy rain that I know is gonna be around.
I want LIBYAN JULY WEATHER - now!

Safia speaks said...

Sorry, I meant goes on eastward!
;D

PH said...

But isn't it better this way Anglo ? I remember last summer when I was there it was really dry and Hyde Park looked like the dried up parks in Libya :P and I think there was a limit on water usage and a lot of fines...

salaam

Chatalaine / شاتالاين said...

I feel your pain Anglo Libyan!!
It has been raining here for months and it is HOT! So you can just imagine the mosquito problems. I was in the garden last evening and I was so miserable I had to come in. This is a first for where we live. We live on a hill and standing water for mosquito breeding is hard to find but now everything has standing water in it all day everyday!

Anglo-Libyan said...

poor Ahmed, it really isnt the weather for playing football :o)

yes feeha 7'eer but not when its raining non stop day after day ya romana :oS

sailing in this weather?? Allah ma3ak ya safia, although I wouldnt like Libyan July weather !!

ph, believe me its no fun stuck in the rain all the time, the kids cant even play in the garden and the grass is knee high now but i cant cut it until its dry, thats if it does get dry!
no, no water shortage this year but we do not need to water the gardens with all this rain :o)

thanks chatalaine.
I would hate to be in hot weather and rain, I hope it gets better soon for you.
Happy 4th of July :o)

Lebeeya said...

first of all, I have been facing problems trying to comment on your blog, for the past couple of days the comment window refused to appear. Glad its working now :)

Now about the weather, rain can be annoying but you gotta admit its better than the heat anyday!

DaMoon said...

ahhhh, ya rab etsob 3lina el amtarrr, looking at da rain pics I could almost feel it....I am sick of the hot/humid weather and feeling like an ice cube under da a/c.....
and yes Happy 4th of July
my boss is way too nice, he announced that office will be closed tomorrow, July 5th cuz he didn't want to give us Wed off, then come back Thu, then friday off, so we have a long weekend for once this yr!

Anglo-Libyan said...

lebeeya and I thought you abandoned me as I could see you commenting on other blogs, I nearly hung up my blogging keyboard in saddness :o(
but now I dont have to as you are back :o)

well too much heat or too much cold and rain are a no no, why cant we have reasonably warm cheerful weather all the time? its just wishful thinking :oS

damoon, inshaAllah you get some of our rain and give us a bit of your sunshine :o)
I like your boss, a very decent man, has he got a job for me?? :o)

Weldemdina said...

Ok I am actually getting tired of this wet weather, cant do anything and the mood always gloomy just like the weather, I miss the sun it has a magic touch in cheering me up, and anyone say its a romantic feeling to be under the rain or the snow, I would say to them lets swap :o) but alhmdulelah it could be worse ( hurricanes, earthquakes, floods etc you name it) .
Bring me some sunshine any time, the forecast walaho a3lam for the next 3days more rain, so the umbrella still part of me for the coming days.

Living Away said...

i can believe i was out for this long, but the weather here and there are the same!!
i can't believe!
right now is 10 degrees here in switzerland, with a lot of rain in summer time and 26 degrees in my hometown in brasil in winter time. not fair!!
I'm feeling molded already!!

Lebeeya said...

Abandoned you??

NEVER!!!

How could I, you are my favorite blogger... I promise :)

Anglo-Libyan said...

salam fatboy
thanks for the comment :o)

weldemdina, well you live here and you are having to go through this misery as well :o(
and yes more rain on the way, lovely :o)

living away, nice to see you back and I hope you are feeling better,.
winter weather in Brasil or Libya is what we need, sunshine (not too hot) always brings a smile :o)

lebeeya, I am so previllaged :o)

A.Adam said...

my previous comment, I want to say not to complain because it's good on the other part of earth as you see, Thanks God for everything.

Anglo-Libyan said...

yes a.adam, thank God for everything, in Europe the weather is horrible at the moment just as it is in Libya with the heat, you see I meant we all complain if its too hot or too wet & cold :o)

Ghazi Gheblawi said...

four seasons in one day that the headlines here, no wonder global warming is here now no doubt about that, we sould start to do something about it... Ghazi

Anglo-Libyan said...

Ghazi, I agree that we should do our bit, like recycling and saving energy

piccolina said...

rain is only good when u don't have to go outside , like being warm inside and watching it throw the windows !! that is what i like the most
but when it comes to the kind of rain u r facing OH MY GOD i can't stand it but say alhamdulilah !

Anglo-Libyan said...

Alhamdulellah ya piccolina :o)
it is exactly as you descibed it.

Highlander said...

AngloLibyan I don't know any Hasidic Jews to be honest so I have no idea about their du3a but even the du3a of Arab christians sounds exactly like ours- we all pray to God my friend.

Weather today Friday in Tripoli is finally normal summer one - like those of my childhood no global warming or anything just warm sunny pleasant and not humid.

I join you in wishing a belated Happy 4th to our American friends :)

Anglo-Libyan said...
