Feels Like December!

The past few days have been nothing like normal August weather here in Kuching. Usually, this time of the year it's really hot, dry and hazy with no rains for many days. This year however, it's been highly unpredictable. The weather's gone crazy. Today, it's been raining since around six this morning for about 2 or 3 hours now.

I'm actually building a new orchid shade house and while outside yesterday evening, sawing and measuring etc, a bolt of lightning struck just about 100 meters away setting off car alarms and knocking out the power. It was pretty scary when I thought how it could have struck nearer and put me in danger!

Can't do much today as the grounds are all muddy with the rain. Hope the weather will return to normal as I have quite a few orchids flowering outside and the rains are causing all the snails run amok!
