A week ago, almost the whole city in my country experiencing very hot weather, especially in large cities, including where I live now. All citizens hope of rain, so the weather is a little cooler. Now the rain started pouring down throughout the city, and really, the weather becomes cooler. But in the big cities which full of people, currently experiencing flooding due to heavy rain which fell every day and poor sanitation ... Now, the citizens busy cope with flooding. Yes, the rain has become a dilemma, I think. How in your place?

In the Philippines, we recently had a huge storm that ruined many places. But at least the storm is past and repairs are being handled swiftly as well. I thought this year, it's gonna be cold, but no, in the contrary, it just has become hotter than last year. Although the situation is like that, I still like it since I can see the stars clearly at night, and I can sun-dry my clothes that I washed and it's just comfy and awesome to do so. He he. In hot times like this, it's great practice to master your mind over matter. It helps you focus on other tasks and improves your mental prowess. I hope your country will be much safer and more balanced on the days to come. Kudos~!

Thank you, I also have an expectation that my country can overcome flood well and immediately. Yes, rain have been a dilemma. Without rain most of farm land will dry and can't plant anything, but when heavy rain fall most of big city will getting flood...Oh... Actually, flood is caused by the worst drainage...

@srisahara Did you know that here is a new cement technology that can absorb water and prevent flash floods? Imagine the benefit of implementing this new cement in our streets. That would mean if floods occur, it will be seeped down immediately by this bad boy. He he. Rain is always good, and heat is also important, but too much of one thing can lead to major catastrophes or worse. Maybe it is also high time for us to take care of our environment as well. Here's a video of that cement I was talking about. Kudos~
Watch | AMAZING: in order to avoid flood invented a global company of a new type of ?#?cement? " swallow " 3000 litres of water ?#?that? less than a minute!

@GopherDanny I am sorry I never know about it. Most of street in my country comes from asphalt that can not absorb water at all. I think this is a good idea to be implemented, unfortunately, in my country have never been published. Thank you for your information.

Yes, in my place, the weather is extreme now, after having long dry season, heavy rain fall that impact flood in some area that has bad drains. Until now, bad drains still a big problem in my place and in my country. I think it is bad condition, and should be overcame soon.

@srisahara It seems like your country has not done a good job in providing good drainage.

I think, it is okay have much rain if the sanitation is good and rain never come some problems. Actually, I love rainy season because weather pretty cold, but when rainy season bring flood, it is so sad...

We are fine here. Florida gets a lot of rain sometimes, too, but sanitation is usually not a problem, because we have big pipes deep in the ground that carries all the human waste away and also the rain water pours into drain holes in the street to the pipes that carry it away. The waste is piped to a waste place that cleans it up enough to let the water go back to the ocean. The rest of it is taken to landfills and buried deep in the ground. We are very careful to not ever let human waste get around people because it causes disease. I am sorry you are having such a bad time.

Now, government plans for building big pipes deep to waste the excessive of water to the ocean. I hope the project will finish immediately.
