Drought 旱災


The current drought...., that is, the drought in Taiwan, not in California nor Australia.

The picture above is Shinmen Resevoir, which is said to be on the verge of being empty in 32 days.

Furthermore, the nine frogs of Sun Moon Lake are all revealed back in February. I do not know how many are visible now, but it is a different way to think about a drought. Instead of a severe drought, we could say a nine, ten frogger.

Or if there are torrential rains, such as in the south of the USA over the last few days, instead of saying there was a rain of biblical proportions, we could say that it was a frog-topper!

On the other hand, I doubt we need such metaphorical expressions.
