Shrinking Pattaya Reservoirs

Is that your business? Or just your favorite. I like wine. Of which do you speak?

Gone are the days of me drinking real wine. I refer to 2 off licenses that sell cheap fruit wine. There are many spread all over every town in Thailand. These just happen to be on my normal route. Nothing special about the shops and nothing special about the "wines" ..

My regular place back in the day was Villa Market on Suk 33/1...They had average wines on the shelves downstairs but upstairs (next to a card shop if I recall correctly) is where they kept the "good" stuff..I bloody loved that shop. It was open 24 hours and if I was on a long weekend break from work I'd stock up on frozen lamb and head off home to Surin...Grand old days.....Don't go near Villa Market nowadays..

I want to say more but it would be totally off topic...

With the recent rains had a look at the reservoirs this morning. First up, Huai Chak Nok Reservoir.

The small pond dammed off from the main reservoir.

They're using pumps now to move water from the inflow area on the north end into the main reservoir.

After Huai Chak Nok, used the back roads for a nice ride over to Mabprachan Reservoir.

Water level is up, but still quite a ways to go before they can start pumping from the reservoir again.

Update on the refilling of the reservoirs. First up Huai Chak Nok Reservoir which has slightly more water since the last update on the 10th.

Mabprachan Reservoir also has a bit more water, but still nowhere near enough to start pumping again.
