11th September, 2008

Today's weather;

More overcast this morning but it seems a lighter, brighter overcast compared to previous days. The wind is still very strong though. Current temp at 7 am is 26.2C.

There's also a Tsunami warning this morning after a 7.6 earthquake in Indonesia. I can only hope that this warning is cancelled asap!

It's also 7 years that the so called 9-11 attacks happened in the US.

Yesterday saw lots of overcast accompanied by occasional showers and drizzle although most of the day it stayed dry since the wind seemed to be too hard for rain. Max temp reached 29.5C.

On the political front things are relatively quiet but that can all change tomorrow when a new PM will be chosen. Don't reinstate Samak, say academics is a plea made by academics. In the meantime the government is planning to use Don Mueang Airport as a temporary workplace because it will take several months to repair Government House after the sit-in protest by the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) and a very interesting article about the PAD's New Politics raising too many questions.

An anti-government website can be found here with regular updates.

Aardbeving? In Nederland niks van gehoord. Vreemd of niet. 7.6 is nogal wat.

Hoi Richard,

Dat is zeker vreemd! Lees je wel de goede krant(en)?

De aardbeving was in de buurt van de Molukken.

De Tsunami waarschuwing werd na ongeveer een uur ingetrokken.

Er was ook een aardbeving in Hokkaido, Japan en die veroorzaakte een hele kleine Tsunami, golfjes van ongeveer 10-20 cm.
