HAPPY 100TH!!!

Hehehe...Happy 100th Postaversary to me!

100

Yups, this is my 100th post! Party My first post was not so long ago on 17th October 2007, and today is 14th March 2008, a good near 5 months. Actually, I never thought I would last this long...hehehe... Peace Sign

So as the 100th one, I would to share with you the following story, which was sent by letter to the NST today.

IN the Guinness Book of World Records, Cibinong in West Java, Indonesia, was recognised as the place with the highest lightning activity in the world when the weather station there recorded 322 days with lightning in 1988. It was also claimed that lightning struck the ground at the rate of 12 ground flashes per sq km per year.

While these figures look pretty impressive, they are small when compared with what we have over here.

According to the data provided on the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MMD) website, the Subang weather station recorded 362 days with lightning in 1987. This means that the meteorologists manning the station had observed lightning occurring somewhere in the sky almost every day of that year.

Perhaps it is time for the MMD to inform the above facts to the Guinness Book of World Records so that Subang is recognised as the most lightning active area in the world.

Hmmm...interesting eh! Thinking
