I wish I had a 4X4

Colombo has the largest concentration of SUVs and other off-road vehicles in Sri Lanka. On an average day many would wonder why they need 4X4 vehicles in a town. But not today. Almost every road is drowned some where. It was horrible. I drove through 3 such places today, Narahenpita road, Jawaththa road and Royal avenue. Water was 2~3 feet deep at some places. I was so afraid the car would get stuck.
It was pouring continuously since last night; and if not for the call that I had to attend in the morning – and I missed – I wouldn’t have come to work today.
