Rain, Flood, Bad Vizz – Holiday Time
The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. ~Patrick Young
Since we have had now another flood on Koh Tao damaging almost every dive school in one way or another its time to run from the island for a bit of a holiday leaving the locals to clear up the mess. Despite yet another warning about protests in Bangkok the tech crew need some sun, shopping and dry ground and NO RAIN!
With that we’ll be suspending diving operations from now until December 1st when the weather is going supposed to clear up.
This time of year Koh Tao turns into that scene from “Forest Gump” with Tom Hanks when it starts to rain and doesn’t stop for a while, that time is now.
According to satellite images of Thailand it seems to be just the south which is usually the nicest part of Thailand.
So we’re going to let the tech room dry out, put all the gear in dry boxes, close the door and head out. We’ll be back on Koh Tao with more stories and news very soon. On our return we’ll be conducting Cave Diving and Rebreather Training on the west coast where it’s actually not bad at all.
in the meantime we though you might find these pictures funny, we’re laughing, what else can we do.
