Raining in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Seriously scary winds and heavy rain in Mae Rim two nights ago, last night just rain - the forecast is for more of the same so that probably means dry and hot sun!

An ocean of rain fell in Hang Dong 4pm ish along with ferocious gusts and howling winds that wreaked havoc.

 

Same here but with a smattering of hail... Power out for a couple hours and then brownouts the rest of the night...

Got a better look this morning, it was actually 6 big power poles over on the Cholprathan Rd , near the place that makes the bamboo construction (CDC?). Jolly lucky there are no houses at that point !!!

Also if you own a house in that moobahn next to  Lanna Pinery (the one with the Thai style roofs) you might want to go and check if your roof leaks - lots of tiles missing!

How can you be "seriously scared" of the wind ?

We have over 30 very tall trees in our garden, watching them sway and bend to the degree that they did was indeed very scary.
