KL Storms

One of the things I’ll miss the most when I return to Oz will be the storms. I know, I know, I still have at least another 12 months in KL. As far as storms are concerned, I’ve only 12 months left.

The storms here are legendary, if not for their full-on-ness™, for their frequency (more or less every day), and regularity (between 2–6pm most days). Like clockwork. Some samples:

It’s getting towards the end of the rainy season, but locals tell us the weather’s been a bit off the usual wet and dry season the last couple of years. Some days it actually doesn’t rain at all. We’ve been here almost a year now I don’t think I’ve gone three days without a downpour. If you get caught out umbrella-less, you’re pretty much screwed. And I love it.

    Very impressive! And the rain? Like a wall of water! Is it always like that?

    Yes, pretty much. Sometimes you can see through, nut mostly it rain pretty heavily.
