Thanks, Greg Cremia for your reply, May I add that farmers in the Philippines should plant water melon these days as an alternative crop aside from rice. It is more suitable for the long summer that they will experience due to El Nino.
WIKEPEDIA my dear. This is always the answer solver and it is updated hourly and usually by the worlds most authoritative minds. It also means you should invest in a good raincoat or umbrella. Monsoon season is a cylical annual El Nino that comes to Asia. The difference is the trade winds temperature and how far they go up past the tropic zone. Mostly innitiated by water temperature and current.
weird...my favorite translation site states el nino means the nino but with the nursing spanish I know then I KNOW nino is boy or son and only used by parents to a boy of their family...it should be the boy or the son
I do know that I am more happy with el nino in AZ than I was in AL specially because of the type of weather patterns it brings...when I moved here for the first time in 1979 was the first time I had ever heard the phrase...and 1979 had an el nino that was wonderful, rained every afternoon for 6 weeks....but it is very dry lately...hope by our coming home the el nino comes up here and gives you guys in the Phillipines a break eh? love to you!!!!!
Looks like your wish for us had been answered, RNMSN. Light rainfall blanketed our dried farm here in our area (Camarines Sur, Bicol, Philippines. We can endure the heat of the sun, but opportunistic people who steal crops from disenfranchised farmers are to hurting to endure.
That's what we're doing all the time, borge_009. Nature takes its course; reacting by hiding it's source, so, the water level goes down everytime El Nino is present. Cloud seeding helps a little bit, but not enough to sustain dying crops in the farm.
