pedestrian safety by Dr. Milker, on Flickr
I live surrounded by rice fields, spiders are my best allies in my daily struggle against annoying bugs, ants, mozzies and all sort of other nasty natural things.
Not really a picture, but the moment I opened my windows this morning I decided to make a quick timelapse of the weather. Definitely an interesting time of the year.
It sure rains a lot in Yilan, but it are plenty of rainier, colder places elsewhere in the world.
Sure, but I don't live in those places so I cannot complain about them >_>
Nevertheless, the cloud "ceiling" and changes in weather mood are impressive in this video about Yilan.
I'd love to live in Yilan, if it weren't for the typhoons, earthquakes, off-the-charts UV, etc.
I wasn't expecting such a change in 12 hours, has it been the same in Taipei this week?
HEY, WE MAY HAVE TYPHOONS, EARTHQUAKES, OFF-THE-CHARTS UV etc., BUT AT LEAST WE DON'T....uhm......shut up, you racist!
We actually had some similar clouds floating through Taipei today, but they were moving a whole lot slower and the overall scene wasn't quite so picturesque.

First starry night of the year, yay! The pic sucks because there was the Moon behind me and the lights of Yilan city from the other direction. I'm hoping tonight the sky will be as clear as yesterday between 9 and 11, before the Moon shows up from the horizon.
