Yep, the monsoonal rains have arrived in southern Thailand. There are several hundred guests here at the JWM walkinjg around with looks of frustration and boredom on their faces.
We have a rental car so we have been able to get out and about. Driving around here is always "interesting" but yesterday we came across five accidents in 20 minutes with the worst on the hill leading into/out of Khao Lak. The traffic snarl on the hill was so bad we did a very difficult u-turn and headed back to Bang La On.
The rain has been so heavy at times that it resembles looking through a waterfall. At 1.45 am I got out of bed and opened the front door and couldn't see the jungle 30 metres across the road.
The rain is widespread and according Metradata weather it is set to last several days.
For us Australians who come from a parched and drought stricken land it has been a sight we don't get to see very often. That is why "I'm singing in the rain . . ."
