It's pissing down in the south of Ubon province this morning, and it's cold - only 25+ 😀 

Lucky you. We were promised heavy rainfall in Nakhon Sawan yesterday, not a spot!

Unfortunately Pattaya is not the place where food is grown for the country, and for exports...

Good amount of rain on the Rayong/Chon Buri  Province border area. Most days it rains for 15 minutes or so.  Pool is full and it has over topped twice in 4 weeks, which is a good sign.  The Silver Lake complex of lakes appears to be nearly full. Its still hot but not oppressively so, around 33/34 degrees.  Mrs P reports from her Issan family village, temperatures approaching 40 degrees and no rain for days. 

Pilot - Looks like I'll be moving down to Pattaya way around May time next year...see you about maybe 😀

For those who are finding it hot, at least you probably have electricity to turn on a fan, maybe air-con and a refrigerator to keep cool water and beer in. When I first came to Thailand in 1974, the place I worked and lived at, only had a generator that provided electricity from about 6pm to 9pm. Some nights, my bedsheets would be saturated in sweat. Prior to coming to Thailand, I spent a year in the Solomon Island in 1968 on the island of Malaita. Again, no electricity except in the evening for 3 hours from a generator. But it wasn't as hot as Isaan because the house was next to the sea.

Ooooh, luxury! 😉
A sizeable part of the 6 years I worked in West and East Africa was spent under canvas, with no electricity at all.

This year has been hot, humid and at the same time relativity dry here outside Udon Thani, the largest reservoir in the North east is Udon Rat, built in 1964 it has never historically been as dry as it is now! been a long time since any power was produced from it!

The only hope is there are some sizeable "tropical storms" in the area before the "rainy" season ends in mid September! 😧

The weakening magnetic field appears to be having a profound effect on Isaan weather, hotter and drier for sure!

If only!

 

Winter season is long gone in Isaan.

 

As far as I remember, there has been only one during the last decade...

 

We now live in perpetual summer season...

Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.  Stay inside.

 

But some Protex Ice Cool Powder.

It's ridiculous. So hot. Even in Chiang Mai. I have to go swim in the pool early during the morning, in the afternoon it's warm water.

 

Even the pool water is too warm!
