The Taiwan Weather Thread 2018


#441

I’m seeing around 50% chance of rain starting at 7PM tonight via Weather Underground.


#442

Only 4:30 and dark as hell outside.

I wouldn’t mind cold or hot or pollution if we could just get more sunshine.


#443

If we pay our dues now, looks like next week we’ll get plenty of it.


#444

Sunshine or pollution? Wait…I guess it doesn’t have to be zero-sum. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#445

This time of year, the two usually go together, unfortunately.

I timed a bike ride pretty well today - saw a few blue gaps in the clouds, and soon after I got home, the darkness rolled in.


#446

I was planning on doing a night ride…then I saw 50% chance of rain and drop in temps.

Work sucks.


#447

I teach in a university. Still plenty of work to do when I’m not teaching, but lots of flexibility about when I get it done. It’s nice, except when that flexibility means I put off the work until the weekend and it turns out to be a gorgeous weekend and I’m stuck inside.


#448

Add an indoor sport to the mix- swimming, weights, treadmill, etc. We are living in Taiwan after all! Frequent 30 minutes in the sauna and you’ll also be ready for the heat to come.


#449

Extra blankets -or extra company- required tonight:


#450

U guys can’t complain really.
Tahoe snow claimed two more lives

A 50 year old mom and her 7 year old son finished a run and walked back to their rented condo
A whole lot of snow slid from the roof as they arrived at the condo and they were buried under 3 feet of snow and died

Must’ve been knocked out otherwise you should be able to stand up from 3 feet of snow

Apparently no one was around to help in time


#451

Well the cold fronts have claimed around 50 lives each time, mostly elderly and with heart conditions.

I think a lot of people die due to black ice accidents, falls on sidewalks and others in teh city when it snows. Those mountain accidents are awful.


#452

I’m so happy,
I could cry,
blue sky,
when will it die.


#453

I think the weather in Taipei is more closely in line with the thoughts of the great Elvis Costello:

I said “I’m so happy I could die”
She said “Drop dead” then left with another guy

Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

Guy


#454

Two things I’ve never seen before.

1 so many people smiling
2 a sunny day with no umbrellas.


#455

The wind is coming from the south east!


#456

this has got to be a world record in taipei for the most consecutive days without clouds ever. beautiful!


#457

3 blue sky days in a row isn’t it. Definitely a year record.


#458

Why is it always hot? What’s this garbage? Can we have some more winter please?


#459

Yes, two more months of that would be nice.


#460

it lasted 4, pretty good!. today is a lot cloudier and polluted.
