The Taiwan Weather Thread 2017


#663

And it is much much worse in China:


#664

Great weather for snakes!

A rather large cobra where he shouldn’t be


#665

Youch!


#666

What is “little helpers house” and why do they host cobras?

EDIT: I don’t think it’s a cobra.


#667

It’s definitely a cobra

Apart from the hoodie, they have this blood-curdling sound - it’s a hiss but almost a soft growl - sounds like Voldemort talking


#668

Soup tonight?


#669

Haha, if my neighbour’s had seen it…

But actually I was super impressed with the fire brigade guys who came to catch it - got here in 10 minutes - the drive from their base is 9.5 minutes - they caught it and bagged it in 3 minutes - then went off to release it eco-style into a new, suitable environment

Very un-Taidong style. As a public official, I feel obliged to report their behaviour in case it catches on


#670

Where was this? city?


#671

That’s interesting. At the beginning I thought it was a cobra, but that extra large head (probably a semi erected extended hood), and when I coworker said that that wasn’t a cobra, then I thought it had to be something else. If you say it’s a cobra, I believe you.


#672

This should convince your co-worker!


#673

Severe lightning storm happening in Chiayi right now

Assume it’s associated with the TD going up the coast

Lovely thingy. A bit pissed off though :smiley:

BTW, in addition to the hood and the hissing, the whiter lines also tell you that it’s a cobra.


#675

Rain and thunders are back, yay!


#676

It’s like typhoon weather out there near Zhongshan MRT.

No rain…yet.


#677

No rain? o.O Around Technology building we’re going to need boats very soon.


#678

Great…I’m heading there after I get off in a bit.

So you ARE in Taipei…


#679

At the moment, yes!


#680

Shitty Friday ahead!


#681

The good news is that CWB has Taipei at only 30% POP!

The bad news is the radar says otherwise…


#682

(Well, actually they’re quiet quiet, but there are LOTS of lightenings right now!)
