How about green beetles? We get a lot of those around the park in Xindian. Usually this time of the year, after the rains. Metallic green ones.

Back in the ol country we used to have golden ones.


#443

In Yilan those cool green beetles has been showing up for a while already.

I’m more worried about rove beetles though, they’re the most annoying thing about living surrounded by rice fields.


#444

You’re telling me! Those rover guys are supposed to be the culprits of my current pain. :rant: BTW, thanks for asking, my wound is much better, but still throbbing.


#445

After 2 days of rain, I realize my fave flower are getting bald did check and seen few green worms eating the leaves and flower buds :fearful: tonight need to make some home made pesticides.


#446

Careful if they are snails instead of bugs!


#447

There is 1 big mama snail and…and with babies also eating leaves - :rolling_eyes:


#448

Sorry to say but throw that away. Snails carry a lot of parasites and diseases.


#449

I want to know about Wulai too. Anyone in that area? Can so go river trace 加九寮 yet? How long to wait?


#450

You might post an inquiry here:

I too would like to know how things look.

There’s something really strange yet somewhat familiar when I look up in the sky… it’s blue and it’s everywhere… I wonder what that is.

Not too excited. It probably won’t last past noon.


#452

My Mexican classmate defined this morning’s weather as a “Turkish bath”. Very accurate.


#453

How about today?


#454

Hopefully it will rain in the afternoon.

Storm warning for Yilan, Central and Southern Taiwan, mainloy mountains and East coast.


#455

I was hoping for another week of warm days and cool evenings.

Seems like that has ended.


#456

Well, as per CWB, they have 40% chance of rain for tomorrow and Friday, and dire warnings for heavy rain incoming next week. Weekend looks clear up North… so far.

Cool…only indoors. May I suggest a nice evening in an airconditioned bar?


#457

The hydrometer at home read 80% in the rooms and 90% in the living area.

First time in awhile that I left the AC units blasting dehumidifier for 8 hrs straight.


#458

Extremely hot morning, followed bu thunderstorms in the afternoon. It’s been like this ever since the heavy rain in Taipei.

Thanks, Sky Dragon city.


#459

Intense lightning storm happening in Taidong right now - just had a strike that sparked up one of the power points
The sky has a weird pink hue to it
Not a good time to be living in a tin shed


#460

Every afternoon in Yilan this week, like clockwork. 30+ degrees in the morning, scorching hot sun shining through a complete clear sky, followed by this.


#461

Weather forecast has been changed from doom and rain to sunny, hot and muggy, until Monday.
