Only a trace in Surin, .5 mm. However, the storm still looks menacing and it is heading our way.

Never happened in Surin last night. The beast from the east dropped its load over North Vietnam and Laos by the looks of it.

Thanks Nomad. That's about what I thought.

So when I see stories of major drought in June, they are a bit premature?

Not necessarily, we did have a major drought last year. We were as dry as a bone and no water in the main reservoirs. All the town's supply was dry. Big trucks going around to deliver water. People drilling boreholes everywhere. In the 17 years I have been in Surin, that was the first time we had no water in the houses. This year the town's water supply has been very good, fingers crossed.
