Great to see the rain come tonight(tuesday) as it was a welcome sight. As usual as the rain comes the power goes off.There was no thunder just a good shower of rain .After the water going off and on for 3 days now this .They can spend a fortune on buying their armoured cars and submarines, but cannot give money to local government to improve communities.

We had heavy rain for 15 min at 1510. Did not lose power. Our problem is losing power during the night with no storm anywhere. Half our village goes off and the rest do not. I cannot understand why. After a phone call it now takes an hour to fix. There is a problem but they refuse to fix it.

I'm ready this year, bought 6 LED bulbs with batteries inside that last for 6 hours.

When my power goes off in the storm, I've still got lights.

No more expensive than the normal LEDs, about 90bht each from Lazada.

I bought one of these in Big C last year, can't remember the exact price but under 500B (promotion price).

It has LED light and fan with three settings, I use as a normal fan (I hate aircon) and it never even hesitates when the power goes off.

Obviously battery depends on settings, I've never really put it to the test.

It's around but definitely patchy, we had a good fall yesterday of about an inch.

Same down here. Good rain yesterday for 30 min. The 2 days before thunderstorms east of Phayao and again today.

Wiang Nue area we had a fairly long rain last night and a bit more this morning. I have no idea how much but the klong's and paddy's are all full. Its a start but after reading the TV article on the state of the Mekong and Phayao lake  far more is needed and quickly.

We checked the WPP and Maekhachan reservoirs yesterday and they appear to be in reasonable shape.  Mae Suay very low (it actually ran out totally last 2 years).  Don't have any first hand knowledge of Mae Lao so anyone who does happen to know, please pass it on.  Generally, the southern part of the valley is ok - the north not so.

 

Had a nice light show last night - but only a touch of rain.

Bit like buying 4x4 timber at 2/6d a metre.
