Rain, Rain...(From Bali With Love)

WATER BOOM: Children watch as high tides break against an embankment in Muara Angke, North Jakarta, on Tuesday. Heavy rain and high tides inundated large parts of the city and brought traffic to a stand still.

I had to post this as some people are totally unaware of what happens in other parts of the world. Indonesia experiences flooding every year throughout the year in different locations. Sometimes due to heavy rains, broken dams, volcanic activity or even poor infrastructure....They deal with these types of things, day in and day out. They still work, live, play, go about their business. If we here have a little bit of snow or rain, we don't want to even leave our house or go to work or the store....
