    The main road into the village always turns into a swimming lane

    Looks like the weather might have actually put it off! Cantonese news saying it’ll start tomorrow.

    Just got up and there is a brilliant blue sky. But that might be deceptive for the rest of the day.

    wouldn't really call it a 'squall' if it's predicted but thanks for the reminder! Had the AC on so windows closed and didn't hear it coming. Just enough time to tidy up the rooftop of stuff before it hit.

    This is the first time in my 4 years here the village stream has dried up in spots and in the mtns too, rain is desperately needed.

    It is a squall in some places, the rainfall and wind aren't the same in all of HK.
