What's that in real money?    LOL

 

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

 I thought I would show a little empathy towards the metrically impaired.

I could have said it rained a 1/4 of a dick, but that might be the same measurement to everyone.

Ignore (did you know that word comes from the Latin word "ignorantus") the Yanks and their protegees. 

 

My rain gauge says we got just over 16mm in the last hour - great start - and the first real rain of the season.

Very damp here this morning with a lot of heavy promising looking cloud.

Sun shining today. First time in almost 3 days. We have had steady rain for the past 2 days. No storms and not much wind. Very good for the rice.

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.

Any chance of a picture of the item please?

My wife thinks mine is 9 inches but she never did really know how to hold a ruler.

I did that too. 

 

Never had a power cut since I spent money preparing for it. All the people around about should be grateful to me for this service.

 

If you are suffering drought call me and I will come and clean and polish my car near your home. If rain and mud don't follow a full refund will be given.

Your electrical outages seem sever. We have had none this season. Outages are mostly when there is a lot of wind and heavy (thunderstorms)

One of the days it went off 3 times .Every time my wife rings up the department , they ask is it raining all alot of wind.She has asked them many times why does it go off? This has been going on since the year dot . You would think they would get their act together after all these years .

We are looking into buy a small generator .

It's indeed fairly common in our area, apparently there's two lines and we occasionally see other villager's lights on when ours go off, or vice versa.

The water going off annoys me more, it always seems to happen in the early evening when I'm contemplating a shower before bed.

We keep a large bucket of fresh water in the bathroom for such eventualities.

It went off about 15 times in a single day earlier this week. All in all though it has been a pretty stable year for the electricity. We didn't get the April windstorms that usually do the most damage.
