Christmas Monsoon for Frogs

The season of giving and receiving.

Monsoons that is........with a strong NE monsoon in peninsula Malaysia and Singapore, as well as in East Malaysia there is some trepidation about heavy rain and possible floods in some areas.

In Singapore it has made for great weather with a strong breeze and overcast conditions - really great for walking around, with just a few decent showers and storms.

Malaysia is expecting more rain and floods on the east coast, and there has been some flooding in parts of Sarawak.

North Australia did not miss out either, with  a monsoonal burst across the north including a severe to major category 3 cyclone which crossed the coast of WA near Wickham, and is now moving S and SE bringing wind and more rain.  Not too much damage though.  Plenty of images on line.

While the heavy rain is a bit unpleasant, it is the lifeblood of the country, especially across north Australia, refilling creeks and waterholes and sustaining life. 

I am sure many welcome it.  The frogs sure do!!!
