And, it’s raining again as we speak! Could it be possible that summer is coming to an end and the rainy season is returning? It sure feels different this week.


David is not as hot as Lancaster, California or Manhattan, KS  but at 97F it sure isn’t COOL! Since we don’t have AC I’ve been taking 2-4 showers a day and that did the trick. Even at 97 it was so dry that I wasn’t sweating, just felt like the oven door had been left open. All that changed yesterday….

Coming from freezing Portland, Maine to cooking David, Panama the extreme climate change took the wind out of my sails last week but then came….THE RAIN!

M2910007Thunder, lightning and lots of cooling rain. They say the rainy season starts on April 15 but if it wants to come early, let it come.M2910008

I’m actually comfortable while writing this post, it’s so nice…

    Hi Kris: When we were in Belize, which also has the heat and humity, we found another helpful method to get thru the day. We bought a couple of cheap styrofoam ice chests. In the morning we’d put ice in them with a washcloth. During the day we’d wipe down our faces, necks etc for a refreshing break. Combined with a couple of showers, we found we could get thru the day and dry, hot season. You may already be doing this but I thought I’d pass it on if you weren’t. Thanks again for sharing your experiences.
