Top 7 Funny Tweets about Lagos Rain and the Eclipse

Lagos has experienced a stormy couple of days this week and the wetter-than-usual week has definitely filled many Lagosians with angst and disdain — at least on Twitter, anyway. Most painful was the case of many having to miss viewing the September 1st solar eclipse as a result of heavy clouds and the rain.

Among all the grumblings and grousing, however, a few have been able to make light-hearted comments that are sure to make you laugh enough to crack a rib or two. Jumia Travel has collected 7 of the funniest Lagos rain tweets. Check out the slideshow below and comment on your favorites — or add your own!
