    Thai Website Hunsa Is Reporting That It Is Snowing In Doi Chang: True or Not?

    Anyone live in or near Doi Chang? (close to Chiang Rai)

    I will be posting a pic shortly, but want to hear from any member that lives there if it is true or not!

    absolutely ridiculous.

    it's fukking boiling here and I'm only a few hours down the road, though it's often cold enough in november or december to make me wonder why we don't have any.

    Hail can be a freak occurrence with some thunderstorms, even in hot climes, so if they've been having storms (as we have) it's possible.

    I have only experienced hail in hot weather storms. Does it happen in cold weather?

    One of the reasons I posted this is because Hunsa is giving the fortune teller I posted about before all this praise saying that he predicted it would snow in April and Thailand has never seen this before.

    Just hail, Hunsa is trying to get the fortune teller belief alive i guess. I am anxious to see the Bkk Post in the morning to see if if there is more inaccurate reporting.

    This is the doom and gloom fortune teller from my earlier thread.
