Cool It!

The recent spell of hot weather, with temperatures hitting 38.8ºC is due to have a respite. Tonight or tomorrow morning (30th and 31st July), typhoon Begonia is due to make landfall in Fujian province. Although this won’t directly have any bearing on Guangxi, it will lower temperatures across southern China and bring rain to some […]

Cool Job

I’ve found the perfect new job for these times. Hope they’ll take me on! As Liuzhou’s temperature hits 37ºC /98.6ºF, I could be quite happy to join this chap who is well wrapped up. He is a worker in a Liuzhou refrigeration company and routinely works in temperatures of -18ºC / -0.4ºF. This means there […]

Spring Fever

-c-c-c cold

While we are finding it difficult to breath, it has been unseasonably warm recently. 24ºC at the moment. However, don’t get too comfortable.

Falls of 10ºC are likely. It will also be wet. Sadly, there are no indications that this will be short lived. It looks like […]

Hot

Today, Liuzhou’s temperature hit 36ºC. I have no idea and even less interest what that is in illogical, antediluvian measuring systems only still used in one backward  country. Most unusual for September, but over the next few days it is going to slide back to a more normal 26ºC.

Hot and Wet

What little is still functioning in the bowels of the UK government has managed to excrete this travel warning. Same every year.

Here We Go Again

I’m sure these images need no comment from me. After days of torrential rain, it is only to be expected. Although I have seen what looks worse in the past, in fact, things are getting worse. They keep raising the flood protection barriers etc, but it’s never effective for long. If they hadn’t raised the […]
