endless rain until wednesday up here in the north…lots of the main streets super flooded in taipei.


#1225

Entertained. Better than Geostorm which I stop when Daniel Wu buys the farm.

Ok, 3 French guys and their cute little black dog got stuck in the middle of a river while exploring a waterfall. All rescued safely after several hours.

This is why we tell you not to go river tracking or surfing in this kind of pre, post or during typhoons weather. You end up on the cover of Apple Daily and we get to see your wet underwear derriere or lack thereof on tv. On heavy rotation.

Endangering their pet will not endear them to the animal rescue circles.

Wow I didn’t know there were even three , count em, three frenchies in Taiwan.

Knowing icon she would spot em


#1228

Poor doggie strapped to a guy’s back being both pulled over to shore deep in muddy waters. Very scary.

Zhongshiao Fuxing having Nari flashbacks. Waves instead of road. They say it is because a sewer was stuck with garbage.

Daan Park and close to Taipei City Hall flooded.

Keelung heavy dangerous floods. Watch out in traffic.

Banciao, Yonghe in trouble too.

And rain will continue…

looks like the north is feeling what the south felt like a few weeks ago. finally, in a sad way, they have common (wet) ground


#1231

Well Tainan is still suffering. Lots of sinkhole, which makes safety more of an issue.


#1232

sinkholes in K-town, too.


#1233

Good grief ! But at least all the reservoirs should be full.


#1234

Remember there’s a website for that:


But I’m not entirely sure what it means because I’m not sure what reservoirs are the most important.


#1235

on the bright side, it’s not hot today. it’s almost comfortable if you’ve got good raingear.


#1236

Cool breeze through the window, haven’t had that in a while.


#1237

Yeah I’ve got my windows open today and no AC running…in the late afternoon. A pretty sure sign that “fall” (i.e. the 3-4 weeks of tolerable weather before it becomes wretched cold wetness) is coming.


#1238

Heh I appreciate this sentiment.

Lovely in Tainan today to be fair, little overcast, nice breeze, I might even go outside before sundown.


#1239

Y’all enjoy that lovely outdoor air-con this morning in Taipei ?


#1240

Mornings around 5:30 AM are always nice!


#1241

Where? I live in Xindian and as soon as the sun is out, the oven is full blast. The sun hits your face like a baseball bat. Feels like that scene in Knowing.

But today, yeah, for one day, temperature was just right.
