Preparing for the rainy season


October is almost over. The drought is still not over. However, for regions that have seasons like Indonesia, it is time to get ready for the rainy season. When the clouds start to appear in the sky then there is certainly hope that rain will come soon.
We often forget that behind the blessing of rain that is always waiting for everyone, we need to prepare everything well. The rainy season also brings problems that we will face together.
Roof can leak, gutters clogged and even flooded.
All that we have to face with good preparation so that when the rain comes there are no problems that will make us panic and difficulties. lest it rains when we just make preparations facing the problems due to the arrival of the rainy season. Now is the time we prepare to welcome the rain so that later we no longer bother too much.

At least we have to start from the family and home environment, then move around the surrounding community. There are several things we can do such as:
1. Check the roof and gutters
If there is a tile that sags or breaks it would be better if replaced. Cracked parts need to be coated with a coating so that when it rains it does not leak.
Check and clean chamfer from garbage such leaves that can inhibit the rate of water. if there are holes, cracks or need to be replaced, take immediate action. Give a coating or replace if necessary.

2. Clean the gutters
Invite family members to clean the water around the house from trash. Rubbish that accumulates can inhibit the flow of water.

3. Don't litter.
Everyone must start to realize that littering can bring disaster. Garbage that is carried by the flow of water and piled up in one place will be dangerous because it makes the water stagnate and explode. garbage thrown into the river can be the cause of flooding.

4. Trim branches and cut trees if necessary
Cut tree whose branches whic disturb our house so they can guard against the possibility of falling on the house. Likewise, if there are trees that look too close, they should be cut down. this can reduce the risk of falling to the house.

5. Complete the raincoat and umbrella
On a clear day we never feel the need to bring a raincoat. But once the rain comes we will have difficulty traveling if you do not bring a raincoat or umbrella. So it's good before it rains to prepare a raincoat in the trunk.

6. Prepare medicine at home.
Change of seasons often makes children sick easily. Especially when the first rain often makes headaches and fever. for that, parents need to provide medicine to keep the worst possible.

7. Mutual cooperation
Before the coming day, all residents should be invited to work together to clean the surrounding environment. By working together, the work will feel light and can be a proof of mutual responsibility.

With these steps it is hoped that when it rains we will not get too much trouble.

Thank you for reading my post. I hope you enjoy it.

Bersiap menghadapi musim hujan


Bulan Oktober sudah hampir selesai. Kemarau masih belum berakhir. Namun, bagi wilayah yang memiliki di musim seperti Indonesia sudah saatnya bersiap masuk ke musim hujan. Saat awan sudah mulai mucul dilangit maka tentu ada harapan akan segera datang hujan.
Kita sering melupakan bahwa di balik berkah hujan yang selalu dinanti setiap orang, kita perlua menyaipkan segalanya dengan baik. Musim penghujan juga membawa masalah yang akan kita hadapi bersama.
Bisa atap bocor, talang mampet dan bahkan banjir.
Semua itu harus kita hadapi dengan persiapan yang baik sehingga saat hujan datang tidak ada masalah yang akan membuat kita panik dan kesulitan. jangan sampai ketika hujan kita baru melakukan persiapan mengahdapi masalah akibat datangnya musim hujan. Sekaranglah saatnya kita bersiap menyambut hujan sehingga nanti kita tidak lagi terlalu repot.

Setidaknya kita harus mulai dari lingkunagn keluarga dan rumah, lalu bergerak ek lingkunagn masyarakat sekitarnya. Ada beberapa hal yang bisa kita lakukan seperti:
1. Periksa atap dan talang
Jika ada genting yang melorot atau pecah akan lebih baik jika diganti. Bagian yang retak perlu di lapisi dengan pelapis agar saat hujan datang tidak bocor.
Periksa dan juga talang dari sampah yang bisa menghambat laju air. jika ada bagian yang berlubang, retak atau harus diganti lakukan tindakan secepatnya. Beri pelapis atau ganti jika memang diperlukan.

2. Bersihkan selokan
Ajak anggota keluarga untuk membersihkan saluarn air di sekitar rumah dari sampah. Sampah yang menumpuk bisa menghambat aliran air.

3. jangan buang sampah sembarangan
Semua orang harus mulai menyadari bahwa membuang sampah sembarangan dapat mambawa bencana. Sampah yang terbawa aliran air dan menumpuk di satu tempat akan berbahaya karena membuat air tergenang dan membludak. sampah yang dibuang ke sungai dapat menjadi sebab terjadinya banjir.

4. Pangkas dan rapikan pohon
Jika ada pohon yang dahannya mengarak ke rumah pangkas sehingga bisa menjaga dari kemungkinan jatuh menimpa rumah. Demikian juga jika ada pohon yang terlihat mengarah terlalu dekat sebaiknya ditebang. ini bisa mengurangi risiko tumbang ke rumah.

5. Lengkapi jas hujan dan payung
Saat hari cerah kita tidak pernah merasa perlu membawa jas hujan. Namun begitu hujan datang kita akan kesulitan bepergian jika tidak membawa jas hujan atau payung. Jadi ada baiknya sebelum hujan untuk mempersiapkan jas hujan di bagasi.

6. Siapkan obat di rumah
Pergantian musim sering membuat anak gampang sakit. Apalagi saat hujan pertama sering membuat sakit kepala dan demam. untuk itu, orang tua perlu menyediakn obat untuk menjaga kemungkinan terburuk.

7. Gerakan gotong royong
Sebelum huja datang sebaiknya semua warga diajak untuk bergotong royong membersihkan lingkungan sekitar Dengan bekerja sama pekerjaan akan terasa ringan dan bia menjadi bukti tanggung jawab bersama.

Dengan langkah-langkah ini diharapkan saat hujan datang kita tidak terlalu mendapat masalah yang berarti.

Here in Northern Thailand the rains are almost over. Nice tips. I would add some natural mosquito control ideas, and some nice warming herbal-ginger teas to keep away the damp.

Wish you fertile abundance as the rains come.
