Monday Madness: Weather

1. Where you live, what kind of weather (or weather-related tragedy) do you fear the most?
Flooding! We are renting out our basement rooms plus, down there is where we have our furnace cum and storage area. We must always make sure that the valve is turned off when it is raining hard or else, our basement would be floating!

2. What kind of weather do you MOST enjoy?
I love the sunshine because you can wear what you want and the kids can play in the garden; I love the snow because I love making snow angels. I love the rain but only when I am cozily dry. 'Used to love running around in the rain but not in Europe :-)

3. What kind of weather do you LEAST like to drive in?
I dont enjoy driving at all :-), but when I must drive, I'd rather have a dry street.

4. What is the scariest weather-related experience you've had in your lifetime?
I was not really scared but alarmed. The earthquake that shook Manila during the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. I was alone in the house with small kids when we felt the house shaking horizontally and then vertically.

5. Share a "weather picture" with us!
See photo taken last weekend.

I'd be scared too if there was an earthquake and I was alone with my kids. Ugh! I love your weather photo! Our basement floods from time to time - we're renting a very old house, over 100 yrs old.

Mine's posted here.

Have a great week ahead!

when we talk of weather, most would disagree with me. i simply love the rain, i don't like the summer heat. and maybe, just maybe, i would survive winter (tho the nearest to winter that i had was beijing in november

I don't really like the heat esp here that it gets humid too. I like the slight rain showers though.

I agree with everyone, the photo is really nice!

kellie - thanks for the visit!

deb -- it was not knowing what was happening that scared me; but the kids took it as something exciting.

meowminx -- if your basement floods from time to time, then you leave it empty now, or?

sexymom -- at first, i thought i wont survive spring here, hahaa! but eventually, i adjusted.

mom -- i love the warm rain in asia, in fact, the kids are looking forward to playing in the rain when we come for a visit.
