Hang Dong road re-designated a 'river' .... foot high sandbags line the kerb on Kad Farang side as water continues to pour down from the hills and out of khlongs.Close to 2011 levels which was a couple of weeks after I moved there. Down where KR lives we were isolated but in reach of some of the big shopping centres
Don't forget your wake board.I'll be in Bangkok next week and will likely need a boat ... 555
What I recall of 2011 is waking at my new pad to 3 dry sunny days after overnight deluges had roughly half filled my lid-less plastic garage bin on all 3 occasions. I was in town for a month or so before that and it was fairly dry.After such a wet rainy season, far wetter than 2011, there is no ground absorption ... it's all running off.
The Mae Ngat Somboon Chom Dam is at 88.7%, up over the closed spillway, still rising, so not discharging .... yet. Mae Kuang Udom Thara Dam is at 84.46% and rising fast.Everyone blamed the opening of the dam further upstream where the rain was far worse.
I met up with Stew on my last night in CM in July at a nice establishment called Crusty's Bar and Grill. About half a kilometer from the Ping and on the same road as Bangkok Hospital but on the old city side of the river. A bit out of the way but great atmosphere and it was on my list of places to go back to on my next visit.Close to 2011 levels which was a couple of weeks after I moved there.

Yes, BKK is the worry!I'd be more worried about BKK which is where all this water will be headed just like 2011.
