any information on lifting of any water restrictions?

Kaohsiung is barely yellow. It will take more rain and more time.

Taiwan is not alone here in facing water troubles.

Here’s an informative—if also depressing—report on the situation in the western United States:

The rain is long overdue. Guess it all decided to come at once.

Hopefully some more plum rains to come. That will sort us

A tad premature, old chap.

Well there could be massive flooding and they still say there aren’t enough water. It never rains at reservoirs for some reason.

Fucking pissing it down now

How’s the river tracing coming along?

We seem to get a 1 minute deluge about every 15 minutes, makes a hell of a noise, and a fair amount evaporates.

I didn’t manage to get out that far this weekend. Shot some macro instead.

Given the amount of rain, I’d say this was a good call.

Take care Mr Bear!

Great link, with an easy to use map for the different reservoirs.

I was woken up at like 5 this morning. Not #cool.

Yup, also good (albeit broken at the moment?), but I already had that one and I’ve seen it posted here a few times. A few minutes ago I was comparing the two links so I can finally figure out where some of these reservoirs are.

I’ve also taken a couple of screenshots from that one over the past few days, out of idle curiosity for how much difference this weekend of rain may make. (As of lunchtime today: not much at all.)
