Horrible, horrible weather - March 18th, 2011

No more gloating until tomorrow. I promise.

For the past three days we have had horrible weather. The temperature has dropped to 15C.

If that weren’t bad enough, it has been raining. In the dry season! The chutzpah!

The streets are wet and slippery. People ride their scooters holding an umbrella with one hand. The Mekong is bloated.

Our garden is soaked. Our swimming pool cover is soaked. Our lives are soaked. We spend every non-working moment huddled in blankets.

Luckily friends, Michel and Baj, lent us their car before leaving for France so I can take the kids to school with some semblance of dry dignity.

Tomorrow’s weather forecast calls for 30C and sunshine.

So I will live to gloat another day!
