Flooding in Bangkok

So we have spent most of the last 3 or 4 days in our house because we had some major downpours for a few days in a row, not to mention crazy amounts of lightning and really loud thunder (waking us up at 3am, the loudest thunder I have ever heard).

The street directly outside of our house was about 6"-1 foot deep with standing water. The closest main street was even more flooded, in some places it almost went up to my knees, we had to wade through it a few times...Don't worry, I washed and scrubbed like crazy when I got back, who knows what is in water that is standing for 3-4 days...some places smelled like feces, sick!

The flooding finally ceased last night and we could cross the main road without getting wet, Nolan and I rejoiced. Otherwise our stomachs would have gone hungry for the night as most things were closed at that time.

I updated my comment restrictions, I'm pretty sure that you may leave comments now. So if you want to leave a comment, please do.
