Hopefully it heads your way looks like its blowing west to east.  I have had my sliders opened in all rooms and the breeze is blowing through the condo now, and keeping it at 29.5 C, with a PM 2.5 of 3.  So all is good other than being just heavy sprinkles and not the usual downpour.  It is very welcomed.  Glad I ran this morning at 5 am.

The rice farmers have been pumping water this week but as of this minute it's all quiet on the eastern front...except for the rain drops.  This morning the gauges read: 26mm in the village,  27.5mm orchard #1 which is 2.5km NorthEast from here and 27mm at #2 orchard 5km East.  That was at 6:25 to 6:40am and the rain has been constant/light till about 2 minutes ago!
