Love it, didn't have to cut the grass for 2 weeks as it doesn't grow.   Cleaned the house today, and didn't sweat.   Aircon uses less electricity.   Couldn't we have this

It has been darn cold 🥶 in the mornings this week...never thought I would need a heater in my house or space heater in my room in Pattaya 😁😁😁

Amazing how quickly we forget the temperature of an English summer 🥶🥶

It'll get a bit warmer at night as we head into the weekend, but then it's back to frigid nights next week, and it might get even colder.

Unusual to have such a protracted cool spell here, it's mid-January and by now the cool season should be well in retreat.

One small consolation is that the village swimming pool gets too cold for us tropical softies to use in this weather, so the fact that Covid has closed it makes no difference.

I was in Pattaya mid December and the hotel pool was quite a challenge.

Did a bit of dabbling and enough.

 

I've been swimming in the sea at Jomtien recently and it's not too bad after you get over the first minute or so of cold shock. But with the maximum afternoon temperature only 25° C, and a stiff northerly breeze, getting out of the water is worse than getting into it, so I'm back to exercising Shank's Pony until the weather warms up a bit.

Presumably the sea remains at its normal temp, around 29C?

18°C? Wimp :biggrin:

Come up here.

What do you think about 10°C?

And you can have it lower.

At 7 AM the thermometer in the outside shack showed 12°C.

Yep...20 years in Thailand has definitely made me a temperature wimp!

Same for me and many as it seems.  Such temperatures were autumn/spring at home.

One of the main reasons I wanted to live here was to escape the Canadian cold. I recall the last summer I lived in Canada (2003), waking up in the morning during the hottest part of the year and it was 17 degrees.

Last summer I went back to Canada at the end of June. During the day the temp was up to 28+. Day 3 it clouded over and an hour later it started raining. The temp dropped to 7 !
A 21 degree drop in an hour !

I don't mind the cool here. I can wear a hoodie in the mornings if it's a wee bit nipply and I know that within a couple hours it'll be back to quite comfortable temperatures. At night I have a fan blowing out a window to help circulate the air in the house but I don't need the air con.

I too wouldn't mind if it stayed like this all year round. Surely there has to be a place, somewhere, where it does stay like this year round ?

Couldn't we have this all year around?

Aircon?

We have hardly used the aircon in the last few months. This week not even a fan on.

I am not that far from Pattaya but a rural area, dropped to 15 overnight Monday with a very cool breeze all day Tuesday.

Just waiting for the sun to come up before a bit of gardening.
