Sunday afternoon, 3:44pm
Last night, Hong Kong Observatory forecast "rain" and "thunderstorms" for Sunday. . . well, as they say around these parts, wah!
Around 3:30pm, day turned to night. If the street lamps had light sensors they'd have turned those lamps on. But they don't, so they didn't.
That didn't stop shopkeepers and householders reaching for their light switches as a couple of thunder claps later the heavens opened up. . . producing a torrential, and I mean torrential, downpour.
By 4pm it was all over.
