11th November, 2007

Today's weather;

It looks most promising, as the picture beneath shows, taken at sunrise between 6.30 and 6.45am this morning.

The sun is out again, early in the morning, despite some (white) clouds being in the sky. The view is great, I can see the Koh Phangan hills from our balcony, a good few clicks away.
It will take a few days or possibly weeks to clear all away from the recent flooding and hopefully the local and national Government learned some lessons and are willing to do something with those lessons learned, so in the future, Samui isn't that vulnerable for flash flooding.
Current temp at 7am is 25.5C
Yesterday saw a lovely day, smiles all around and people hanging their damp and wet clothes etc out to dry in the sun. Max temp reached 29.5C, we're on the way back!
Thanks to every watching my simple weather blog over the last few days and the support received, the amount of visitors was sky high, in my little blog world, sometimes up to 300 per day! I do hope that once you found me now, that you keep coming back. Don't be shy to post comments and ask questions, I appreciate that a lot.
Now it's time to post a couple of non weather related items again, probably will start with some restaurant reviews soon.

Your support is appreciated!

Things are looking a lot better again and I most certainly hope that you'll have a great time in Thailand.

Hey Camille, per toeval je blog ontdekt, zeer leuk gedaan,ik kom uit Belgiƫ naar Koh Samui volgende week voor een verblijf van 14 dagen. Weersvooruitzichten en "visibility" om te duiken ?
In welke club zit je ?

Hoi Guy,


De weersvooruitzichten op het moment zijn eigenlijk helemaal niet zo slecht en het zicht op de duik stekken in Koh Tao, die wij gebruiken in Samui, schommelt rond de 10 meter, maar is soms ook minder.

Werk bij Samui International Diving School.

Hey Camille,

I was reading your blog site and had a couple questions for you. Hope you don't mind.

I arrive in Bangkok on Thursday and have pre-booked a flight to Samui.

I saw on your site that it's been flooded and heard the airport was closed. Is it still pretty bad?

I was planning on hitting up the full moon party in Ko Phangan on the 24th, but if the weather is bad I may go to the Andaman coast instead. Got any suggestions?

Thanks for you help.

Hi Danphy,

Thanks for your post, it's nice to hear from so many different people.

Things are getting back to normal again at the moment.

The airport was only closed for one day and flights are on schedule again.

If you arrive on Thursday, it'll give you plenty of time to make up your mind.
