Things are looking green thanks to the rain

Eye of the storm

Yep today is rain again.. One of the more violent, if less wet storms of the week.

First there is the distant role of thunder

The gathering storm clouds

Then the wind gets up

There is often a brief power outage

and finally the rain arrives.

It's stop after a brief downpour, but lookin g at th sky and hearing the trees in the wind, maybe we are just in the eye of the storm.

If it has truely passed then we were clipped by the edge.  but yes, the wind has risen, teh rain has returned, we were in teh eye of the storm

I was not surprised when Nit and crew arrived back early.

I could hear the thunder to the south... towards ku khao where they were selling and could sense the wind rising.  The new tent struture could not stand up to the wind....

I am sensing a downpour soon..... The first drops have started, and the sky has darkened.

At least the oppresive humidity of earlier has gone.

The worse could still bypass us but we'll see.

Remember When....

You were raised on egg & chips, played in the dirt, got smacked when you misbehaved, had 4 TV channels & no remote, school day always started with assembly, shops were closed Sunday, watched films without thinking they were real, recorded the top 40 from the radio by blocking the holes on casette tapes, drank water from a hose, didn't know what a Happy Meal was, and you still turned out OK

Back after my break

I quickly remembered why I left Pattaya!

Signs iof low season with more bars restaurants with 'For Sale' signs than I've seen in some time.
