Weather in Taiwan

Posted: September 12, 2009 in Uncategorized

Saturday in Danshui: 32 degrees Celsius = 89 degrees Fahrenheit (Heat index = 98 degrees Fahrenheit)

This is the first morning we have woken up to rain since arriving in Taiwan. We have been blessed with beautiful, hot weather. The first two days, it was relatively pleasant and did not seem as hot as everyone had said it would be. I think that is because we are used to humidity from where we live, and there were quite a few clouds in the sky. On Friday and Saturday, we realized just how intense the sun is here – it’s okay in the shade but the heat from the sun just takes your breath away at times. I compare it to a hot, July day in south Florida. It’s fairly common to see people walking with umbrellas to shade themselves from the sun. The picture shows a temperature reading in Danshui yesterday: 32 degrees Celsuis = 89 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat index was 98 degrees Fahrenheit. It was hot!

    AHHHHHH!!! I have sooo much catch up reading to do! I am so very excited for you guys… isn’t Taiwan so fun?! It is something you just have to experience to understand. I love it. I think I’m going to get up early tomorrow to read through all your posts. My son had horrible viral diarrhea, which we think was samonella issues so i’ve been ran ragged this last week. I’m so glad he’s feeling better so I had time to check in with you. Can’t wait to read more. Many hugs and soon many hugs for your newest little boy. YIPPEE!!!! Congratulations!!

    oh and hot… holy molten lava it’s hot!
