Where Has All the Water Gone?

Post by jackspratt » April 11, 2023, 12:42 pm

It is 2 days before Songkran starts, and not a sign here of full buckets, hoses, ice water, talcum powder or pissed locals (of all nationalities) lining the main roads and minor sois waiting to ambush the unwary pedestrian or motorcy rider.

I haven't seen any stockpiles of water, but there was a long line of gasoline trucks outside Central Plaza in Khon Kaen this morning. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come in the next few days.

Perhaps they are intending on "torching" the place so need plenty of gasoline [-o<

That was my first thought too including those celebrating getting doused as a change from tossing water on one another. This would add a little excitement to the proceedings

Went for a short motorcy ride to my favourite noodle shop, and the water chuckers were almost totally absent - certainly compared to 3 or 4 years ago.

It may even be safe enough for you to stick your head over the parapet, Dero. :D

Same here, drove back from Royal Creek GC to my home. Only had two bucket loads on the 35km journey (was bloody adults as well). Will get worse as we get nearer to Saturday.

In my posts all fees and requirements are the standard R&R but TIT and a brown envelope can make incredible changes YMMV.

If my memory serves me correctly, there is an official cut-off time for the water chuckers today.

Does anyone know what that time is?

I know about 15 years ago it was 18:30 (if memory correct) might have been 19:00.
All finished early enough to safely venture out in time for 9pm football k/off in town
