If you are a Nigerian, we all know it’s no news that we are in the rainy season. It comes along with the cold weather, muddy roads, wet environment and endless drizzles. If you are reading this I will give you 5 ways you can prepare for a journey (short or long) in this season.
Always go out with an umbrella
It’s the raining season, we should all know it can rain anytime even when we least expect it. One of the top ways you can prepare for the rain is to always have an umbrella with you; probably in your car, a small umbrella in your handbag where you can reach it easily.
Always listen to the weather forecast every morning
Most Nigerians disregard the use and importance of weather forecasts. To be factual it saves a lot. It will give you an Idea of how the days weather will be. When it could probably rain. If you don’t have time to listen to weather forecasts you can download weather apps on your phone. It will help you plan your day and stay dry or move along with a cardigan or sweater.
Learn to take it
