Think it's almost like autumn, and many leaves are brown and falling all round you? You are not quite wrong, you know, for Singapore's persistently dry weather has led to more dry, fallen leaves filling streets, pavements and drains, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said on Thursday.

Twenty-five per cent more dry leaves were swept from the streets in February, compared with December 2013. In January, 15 per cent more had to be cleared, it said.
The dry spell "has led to heavy leaf shedding and an accumulation of leaves in some public areas", said an NEA spokesman.
Leaf litter weighing 1,750 tonnes was collected in February, which is equivalent to 350,000 filled rubbish bags.

I will not drive nor park in street level parking when the first heavy downpour comes.

 

With drains choked and weeks of dirt and oil on the roads, it will be flooded and slippery roads.

This will be the time trains are safer, not affected by oily road surface or leaves!!!
