Dry

Is this somewhere in Somalia ? Ethiopia ?
.... Moon ?

Actually, its the surface of the great butress trunk of a Kapok tree Ceiba pentandra, tilted 90 degrees.

It has been almost two months without rain. This January is the dryest month in Singapore for the past 10 years. Only 38.3 mm of rainfall was recorded, a far cry from the long-term average of 244 mm.

That is just amazing. And here in the UK I'm snowed in!

LOL, Anyway you look at it that is a rough tree. Would not want to get too close to it. Sorry about all of the dry weather and hope you get a break soon.
