Reading Tekkaus' post about the weather reminds me of this email I received yesterday. You would have got it too, perhaps. It says..
Whether this is a hoax or otherwise; as a precaution, may be good to have some warm clothings on hand and be home early on 20th Nov.
I don’t intend to cause alarm but I think I need to share this with everyone.
Rumours are surfacing about a freak winter storm that is expected to hit the Kuala Lumpur city centre on Friday, 20 November 2009 at around 7pm.
Being near the equator, KL has never experienced such a cold weather phenomenon and residents used to the hot and humid weather are warned to take serious precautions.
Reliable sources think that there are reasons to believe these rumours following some unusual weather-related events that many parts of the world have experienced in recent history.
Those who have never experienced extreme cold weather are advised to stick close to one another for support. I suggest reading this article on How to Survive Being Stranded in Snow and other similar ones you can find easily on the internet.
As I personally know some of these sources, I will send out further notices as we get closer to the anticipated event.
Remember, mark 20 November 2009 in your diaries. In such an occurrence, there is safety in numbers so stay close to one another, especially after office hours!
A bit far-fetched, don't you think but anything can happen. No matter, just be careful and be prepared for Nov 20 winter weather.
