THE EFFECT OF WEATHER IN MY AREA

in Hive Learners3 months ago
There is time and season for everything. When it comes to weather, it's a natural phenomenon that human beings cannot stop but rather proffer solution to deal with its effects as it arises.

It's the rainy season now and Nigeria's climate has been producing excessive rain across the states, especially in Lagos State Nigeria where I reside. This too much rain has been disrupting lots of activities for so many people almost on daily basis. The Lagos State land hardly absorbs water each time it rains and this causes a lot of un- interlocked roads to look messy and flooded thereby interfering with people's movement. Some part of the major roads on the highway is also flooded on several occasions and this increases the severe traffic we face on Lagos road on ordinary days not to talk of this rainy season.

Lagosians are known for being hustlers and so most people don't sit at home to wait for the rain to stop but continue their daily activities under the rain. This means we have to open our minds to so many disruptions we face while carrying out our daily activities with the weather. The market women and men still find their way to display their products though they still complain of reduced sales due to the weather. The working-class categories are still making headways in their offices no matter the discomfort to avoid salary slashes!!

Personally, the weather has been affecting my health. I don't know if I am a cold-blooded animal 😀🤩 or not, lolz. Whatever I feel unusual cold this day and I can feel it in my ribs. No matter how I cover myself, I still feel cold and this swings my mood and limits me from achieving my goals on daily basis.

Well, at least the cold doesn't stop me from smiling away my worries and that's cool😉.

My children on the other hand are still affected by the weather with cold, cough and catarrh even with much covering. At this point, I am beginning to wonder if we can survive in CANADA OR USA since we find it difficult to cope with Nigerian weather🤩🤩🤩🤩. The kids are also restricted from their outdoor games this period by me at least to reduce some negative effects of the weather on their health. Trust me, this one hasn't been easy on them because they feel bored inside and on so many occasions, they attempt playing football in my living room...whatttt!! Don't dare boys😀😀😀, and when I stop them from that, I will receive a bunch of distractions from them while blogging or attending to some mother duties at home.

Some children in my area who don't follow the school bus to their schools miss school sometimes when the rain is crazy in the morning and I feel for them. Some farmers I know that travel to their farms to cultivate these seasons are also complaining about the weather and how their work isn't going as supposed.

These are some of the ways the weather affects people and me in my area this season and I can't wait for the rainy season to come to an end though I love it when it's not much but its excessiveness this season is indeed disrupting our daily activities.

Omo, I wonder the same too. Honestly the weather here isn't being friendly at all.

My younger brothers are a victim of this. Honestly I feel bad for them, especially during this exams period.

The heavy rainfalls really disrupts a lot of activities for people, I can't wait for this season to come to an end.

Ooooh
So sorry Daniel is been affected by this too much rain but hopefully, the rain will stop.

Our keh??

Eya for those children who couldn't subscribe for school bus don't find easy at all. Perhaps parents should make effort to provide them with umbrella to reduce the effect of the weather on them.

Honestly, I feel their parents should proffer a solution to this so they don't miss out on learning in school.
Thanks for visiting 👍

This season ehn. May God help us. I feel for the market men and women who would still display their wares at the market as it rains...man must survive na. School Children and working class men and women aren't exempted too but there is time and season for everything.

My dear...I feel for a lot of people this season but then, there is nothing we can do rather than find a way out. However, it's not a permanent season 🤩

It is raining cats and dogs. I did not like rain because I did not want to get wet. Good luck Nkem.

Wow...the rain is spreading in so many places🤩. Thanks for visiting 👍

The Lagos lands need a touch anyway..... I saw the flood few days ago and it wasn't a funny sight..
Everyone is having a bite of the weather though... We will get through this too

Wow...see who we have here oo🤭🤭 My doctor welcome to
The flood is horrible in some places, we really need a touch😃

🤩

I sometimes work with a work college who is from Nigeria and when she is on duty she tends to turn up the heating thermostat regularly. So, if you plan to come to visit Canada, do so in the Summer months, you won't like the winter months. If you plan to move, then the West Coast may be more warmer year round.
Thanks for sharing @nkemakonam89

Wow😃
Thanks for this info sis🥰
I will plan to visit during the summer to avoid too much cold🤩🤩

Nice post my dear friend with the effect of weather 😊
Have a good day ✨

Thank you so much my good friend

Lol... Are you people still living in this nigeria or did you move to another country? Hahah.

Which rain ooooo?

Where is this cold you are talking about?

We get a bit of rainfall but it's not enough to stop anything. Just droplets. Hahah. As for cold? Nope! Haha... I'm actually waiting for cold to come because I love that so much. Hehe

We are in Canada now😃😃😃
.oh I didn't inform you? Lolz

I need to borrow Ibadan people this rain cos it's much and the cold is terrible too 🤣

Lol... Don't bother. Immediately after typing the comment, it started raining here 😂😂😂.

That is so infectious. lol. Lagos has transferred their rain to Ibadan. Hehe

Hahaha
It's good for you guys 😃
You people should enjoy the weather ☁️
It's been four days since we washed our clothes, Still, it hasn't dry🤣

Maybe we will roast the clothes like suya🤣🤣🤣

Hahah... Anyhow you want it. As far as you don't burn the cloth. Hahah.

Happy new day. Lol. Enjoy the day

Enjoy !PIZZA and hope your phone is not disturbing your activities.

Wow
Pizza 🍕 pizza 🍕
Thanks so much kene👍
The phone has been fixed now and I am super excited 🤗💃

My younger ones had to stay home from school two days straight due to the rain and It was boring for them not to talk about the knowledge they couldn't acquire that day...

You see...the rain is disrupting so many activities but it's well oo

The weather is not taking it easy on anyone at all. We are kind of getting a share of what we've caused for ourselves. Especially in Nigeria, we are affected by heavy downpours because we do not have good drainage systems and even the good one's we have waste has blocked them.

God help us oo. I'm glad you and the boys are holding up fine.

Yeah..good drainage would have been better to curtail the flooded area but sadly....there are no good ones around.
The boys are getting used to the indoor 🤣🤣, and datz cool for me🤩

Yeah it would have been a lot better.

Oh wow, that's nice, hahaha.

At least the season gives us that kinda outside country feeling 😂
Let's enjoy it while it lasts.

The cold these days ehhn! Even a duvet cannot help.. I wish our health will be in check regardless.

And as for your boys.. They won't understand why you can't allow them to play outside.. they can only understand when they become parents later..
So for now they will be thinking.. "Mummy is not being kind to us" lol😅

Hahaha., ...the boys are already saying that already 🧡🤣 and I don't blame them...I have no strength of visiting the clinic cos of pneumonia😃

And the season is oyibo kinda weather 🤗😃😃 USA in Nigeria 🤩🤩

Thanks so much for visiting

Hehehehe!
They should corporate for now oo!
This weather is not too good to play outside..

Abi oo😅😅
You're welcome!

Lolz, why the moon travel dressing 😭🤣🤣🤣🤣, I guess you also felt it pxd 🤣😂,it's the same over here but it doesn't stop me from doing what I do everyday and if I travel out today I will survive and that is 💯 percent sure... thank you for this

Lolz, why the moon travel dressing 😭🤣🤣🤣🤣, I guess you also felt it pxd

🤣🤣🤣fear God fox..lolz
Glad you face the rain and do your work..great👍

lolz

Some children in my area who don't follow the school bus to their schools miss school sometimes when the rain is crazy in the morning and I feel for them.

It is very unfortunate that the children cannot go to school due to bad weather. Hopefully in the future the weather in your area will improve as usual

Honestly, I feel for those school children and I do hope the rain will give a break

Hello, Nkem :)

I am sorry that you are having so much rain this season and that it is affecting your daily activities. I'm sure the children feel a bit trapped but it's better not to expose them.

I hope the cold doesn't affect you too much. And let's hope for the heavy rains to stop.

Cheers, sassy girl! 🤗

You live in Lagos? Wow! What part of Lagos because I also live in Lagos. It's been raining heavily for some days now and it has not been funny.

Don't compare Nigeria to Canada, if we get there we would survive how others are surviving there 😀😀. At least there won't be bad roads and traffic to deal with. It will just be the cold and nothing that can't be fixed.

Your boys have turned your sitting room to their football pitch 😀😀 that's hilarious. I can imagine how bored they are with the constant rain.

Yessooo, I live in lagos..Ajah side oo and you?
Oh the canada😃😃, let it come first..we will surely find a way out🤣. It can't be compared to living in Nigeria atall, hahaha
The boys....
They can do the unimaginable so many times 🤩🤩
Thanks for the warm visit sassy girl🥰🥰

Wow! I live at General paint. I don't know if you know the area. This means that we are going through same thing everyday in this Lagos. I guess you are now a sassy sister 🤗🤗

Wowww
I know general paint so well 🤭🤭🤩🤩

I have lived in Abraham Adesanya Estate for 5 years before we relocated to Lakowe early last year..

Oh..thatz my sassy sister indeed
Sure..we go through same thing everday

Aha, you are a lagosian o. Oh my goodness. This is quite interesting. We should meet up some day

This weather is sha weather for two 🤣🤣

Hahaha
And I know you have been enjoying the weather from your end 😀😀👍😊

Not at all
You will read my own soon 😭

Hahahaha
Really ? Let me know when it's live🤣🤣 , so I can feed my ears !

The way the weather has been affected people health wise is quite serious now even the bad roads too but it’s well it’s just a season, we will scale through just try and take good care of yourself.

Thanks for sharing

It's horrible oo
Thanks for your kind words

Lagosians are known for being hustlers and so most people don't sit at home to wait for the rain to stop but continue their daily activities under the rain

I’m sure during times like this, Lågöş won’t think twice in hiking the transport fare. Lagos and taking advantage of situations 5&6.

I don leave Lagos for una ooo

You are very right
Crazy lagosoans😀
Come back oo..lol

With all due respect ma, I'm not coming oooo.

Only if Sanwo Olu and Tinubu decides to beg me and gift me a car and road lane for just me in Lagos.

😀😀😀🤩😀🤩

Hahaha....The way you dressed up... THIS IS THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA dressing O...Cold cannot enter of pass through..Crazy thing....Lagos is almost like an ocean now

🤩🤩🤩🤩
Leave me and my dressing op😀
No entrance for cold, all door shut...but then I am still cold sometimes..

Lagos is anoda ocean🤩🤩

Honestly the raining season is not a friend to any outdoor events.. it's a stay at home moment 😂..

Some children in my area who don't follow the school bus to their schools miss school sometimes when the rain is crazy in the morning and I feel for them.

That's very bad for children but I still know of some children that can take this situation for celebration 😂

Yes...it's not too good for outdoor games cos of the cold.
Seems you played under the rain so much when you was a child🤔🤩🤩

Seems you played under the rain so much when you was a child.

I wouldn't want to expose myself tho🤣

I'm sure you and your family can survive it in Canada or wherever you find yourself. The weather is not also friendly over here, all I do is just to cover up..

🤩🤩🤩
We will buy too much overall ,canada ticket should come first..lolz

When the rain comes, a lot of activities are affected and thereby reduced. And the thing about it all is that it is not even doing as if it would be stopping anytime soon, it just keeps on falling and falling...
I wonder how long it would keep this up.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

You are right bruno...I have been wondering if it's a 14 day rain 😀😀
On my way travelling now..come see traffic everywhere due to flood and pot holes caused by this constant rain.

Thanks for reading 👍

That flood in Lagos is really serious. I wonder how those lekki people manage

Honestly , too bad but trust lagosians...they find their way for so many things
