Haze starts to cover Phayao despite 60-day burning ban

Recommended Posts

Thick choking smoke over our house in Rob Wieng today. It's so bad there's a coating of ash on the cars parked in the street. Nice to see they've wasted no time after Songkran to get back to it. angry.png

Not Rocket Science 60 day burning ban every body burns like crazy 61 days onwink.png

It is absolutely awful out there today and getting worse by the hour. Unbelievable.

I like visual references.

Two previous days when it wasn't quite as bad.

Today is the worst I've ever seen it. We're forced to stay indoors with the aircon on, and it's a damn shame because my father is over for a visit and now that we can go out and explore without getting icy buckets of water to the face, this happens.

Glad my family is overseas with me and my youngest ones having a one month respite from the smoke. Back early May. VF, we need to catch up for a coffee then after.

Excellent clouds, Villagefarang. That's how they should be; dramatic and detailed. thumbsup.gif

Yes you have me dreaming of those type of clouds too. I'm just back up through Waterford road from you closer to town. Visibility is less than half a km here. Judging from how faint the crematorium is and that is exactly one half km.

Bring on the rain let's get this all washed down.

I guess this means your still hanging get out in the man cave lucky bugger.

We had these amazing large black snowflakes filling the sky this evening. Looking in every direction there was no obvious source but it was thick and falling from a great height. My wife tried in vain to get a video of it. On the plus side it was all too large to breath in.

Such a pity! I was considering this general region as a good option for retirement, particularly the Care Resort outside Chiang Mai for when I get frail. Before I get frail, the Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son regions seemed ideal because of their natural beauty and 'less touristy' nature.


Now I'm not so sure. As one gets older, the last thing one wants is an annual event that can exacerbate any health problems one might develop as a result of old age.

It is much nicer this morning and I even have the windows open. I’m driving to Chiang Mai today so will get a better look at a broader area.

I wouldn’t rule out northern Thailand completely. If you get frail enough you probably won’t be out running around in the smoke too much. A clean room, great staff, good food, medical care, air-conditioning and an air filter might be all you need. Before you get that frail you could always travel a month or two each year.
