Gawddamn, it finally rained!!!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Gawddamn, it finally rained!!!

Post by ruralvoice » Fri Apr 29, 2016 2:09 am

I'm sitting outside on my porch listening to the gusher slowly dissipate into a polite pitter patter on the roof. Besides the personal relief I am also happy for my villagers-most of whom were already eating the seed rice they intended to plant.

So, I am experiencing this at around 2am in Tbong Khmum Province. If it also rained where you live, let us know. And if it didn't you may be appropriately jealous.

I talked to someone in Ubon in Thailand who they got 3 hours of rain there as well. Very good news. Let's hope it keeps coming down in reasonable but generous amounts spread over a long time without going to the other extreme. The good Lord could really give the poor farmers a break right about now. :bow:

4:45 AM, a heavy shower in Phnom Penh.

Now, 6:20 and the skies look like there is potential for more.

Still raining, not heavily but a polite offering of relief at 6:30am. Somewhere mosquitoes and flies are planning their comeback.

Thundercracks in the distance, rainy season on the way, can smell it in the air.

"Thundercracks in the distance, rainy season on the way, can smell it in the air."

That's probably your underwear you're smelling. Time to change into your wet season pair.
