Singapore is really fortunate where the forces of nature are concerned – there are very few natural calamities. No earthquakes, tornadoes nor hurricanes. Rising sea levels will get us, but that is for the young to worry about. Every now and then though, we get extremely heavy rains – have you heard the phrase “raining cats and dogs”? It feels as though buckets of water are raining down. The picture below shows far more dramatic skies than rain.
Occasionally there are strong gusts of wind, and trees are uprooted. One is strongly advised to avoid the Nature Reserve during bad weather. I found this poor tree about a day after heavy rains.
Finally, though, I couldn’t resist putting this little fella into this post, he was a Force of Nature as far as I was concerned! I was afraid to walk past him, so intent was his stare.
