Well not really. We don’t get monsoons or hurricanes or the other weather disasters that strike the rest of the world. But, we sure do get rain sometimes. It started raining this afternoon so hard I don’t know if I’ve ever seen so much water come out of the sky. It let up for a while and I could hear the river roaring. Now it’s started up again. You really can’t do rain justice in a photo, but I took a few.
The rain is warm but it cools down the air. It’s a great time to sit on the terrace with your computer, book, or whatever you enjoy. People talk about the dreaded rainy season but it’s really not a problem. Days usually start out sunny or with light clouds, so do your outdoor things in the morning. By mid afternoon rain is likely. Some days it doesn’t happen. Yesterday it rained for maybe 1/2 hour and then cleared up. Today it didn’t start raining until around 4:30. It’s now about 7:30 and still raining, though not as hard. It usually stops sometime in the evening though. The only time I’ve seen it rain all the time is when hurricane Sandy was north of us. Then it rained day and night for days.
I like the rainy season. I like the humidity and cooler temperatures. I like seeing green everywhere. Tomorrow I must go see the river!
