There was the haze last week and now we're facing the possibility of a drought due to lack of rainfall. The Pedu Lake area is a tourist destination with hotel resorts circling it. The picture above does not project a welcoming sight.

Compare this picture with the one above. Pedu Lake is a 75sq km man-made lake.
