If only I were a duck

8 Oct

October’s Golden Holiday drew to a close yesterday and this morning many parts of Ningbo were flooded. I had a sneaky suspicion this would be the case. With the exception of the odd half-hour break, it pretty much rained non-stop yesterday.  Where exactly is all that water going to go? Welcome typhoon Fitow. Well, almost. Luckily, Fitow’s eye never met us and we were spared the crazy wind speeds.

I spent yesterday admiring the rain. Who’d have thought water could do that? One moment it’s drizzling, which reminded me of good old London, then the next it’s proper torrential. At one point, I could have sworn it sounded like it was raining marbles, the type of rain that could skin you alive.

After spending two years in the dry city of Handan, I had started to miss rain – what with me coming from London and all. In Handan last year there was a period of six months without a speck of rain. Whereas in Ningbo yesterday the sky dumped between 342mm and 702mm of rain. I can’t really complain. I’d rather be in Ningbo with the rainwater instead of Handan, which seems to be under yet another cloud of pollution this week. Progress, wonderful isn’t it?

It's not about the destination. It's about the amount you spent to get there.
