After several painful hours without electricity since 2.30 am on Monday when the Northern Grid collapsed,the Capital woke up to a light drizzle that brought some hope in the morning.
But cloudy skies and high humidity,ranging between 75 and 88 per cent,throughout the day failed to provide any comfort to the residents.
