    Rainy season is back ..Wasn't gone long was it!

    Here I sit sopping wet as the thunder cracks outside, a welcome change to the dry season that had only really just begun.

    Pisser.

    Kinda interesting that we can't distinguish the 'hot/dry' from the rainy season - last couple of years. Seems like it's been a melding 7 out of the last 10 years. I love the first evening thunder and lightening shows. Fabulous!

    I enjoy the evening rain and thunder storms too. Especially when I am indoors either at home or the pub. They're great!

    I just hate those little freaky ones that kick off in the mornings just as you're about to leave for work. Really fook up my day those ones do!

    8 or so years ago the season start dates could be defined within a week - now there just to be no pattern to 'em!

    Lucky they don't have a rainy season in the USA or else all those tent city beggars would be getting washed out.

    Lucky bastards living in a tent actually. Just like being on holiday every day.

    This is true. Wasn't too long ago that you could set your calendars by the predictable divisions of seasons....the last few years, fok all!

    agreed.

    nothing more romantic than sitting on the balcony enjoying a drink with the rain pounding down outside.

    I blame selective memories.

    Just because most storms were evening storms, not all were.

    It drizzled for 20 minutes yesterday and was really hot as is today? The rainy season won't come until May. It's hot season now. Hot today, hot tomorrow and hot next week

    We're getting the type of daytime thunderstorm activity that reminds one of May, evening rain as well.....remember the last two {pre-weeks} Songkrans? The 'Rainy Season' came on before the holiday. Mid-March.

    Heavy showers, thunder for the last week or so in Buriram. Never seen rain in March before. Nice though, garden likes it too.

    Have to agree with those of you who love evening thunderstorms sat outside under the porch of a bar - can't beat that, unless your having sex with a beautiful woman with the windows open.

    First rain in Udon, just a welcome sprinkle so far but lots of thunder rolling in the distance, although That may be just Marmite farting.

    Dunno about that. Sounds a bit dull by yourself. Throw in a slagdog however......

    Rained on and off all day here.

    I could handle some intermittent rain throughout the year.
    This six month deluge followed by six months without a drop is really crap.

    My Klongs flowing like a beauty at the moment and the rapids under the bridge is giving off a great healthy roar.

    Just love to listen to the sound of water flowing over those rocks and whilst I am lying in bed.
