Are we being affected by the awful storm that hit the east coast of the US? Or is it something else? I know we can get spill over of storms in the Gulf of Mexico above us, but there doesn’t seem to be anything going on there at the moment.
It’s January, dry season in Panama. My neighbors said they have never seen rain in January. But, it rained most of the day of New Years Eve, again on Tuesday and Wednesday, and more yesterday. Today it was cloudy and breezy, sprinkled a bit now and then between spots of sun, but this evening it’s actively raining.
I’m not complaining, not at all. This is extending our green/rainy season by almost a month. It’s pleasantly cool and there is no need to water the plants. I’m very thankful for the rain.
Thursday though, I don’t think it rained in David but we had a band gig in Boquete in the evening and we played on the outside terrace. It was cold!! It rained up there, and there was wind so the chilly misty stuff was blowing in. Any audience who stayed out with us was close because everything was wet back by the railings. Most of the people stayed inside to keep warm and dry.
it was a very fun night though. Quite a few other musicians came and some sat in on some songs. I love the camaraderie, friendship, and support in the music community, and there some really excellent musicians here!
Life is strangely wet for this time of year but it’s all good.
