Hoping Rainy Season Started Early!

Of course it was right after I watered my gardens that the big downburst of rain came and just kept raining like one of those good rainy season afternoon showers. Yeah, we were hoping the same with our March 22 rain but it was not this big of a thundershower and didn’t have the Pacific Ocean storms we’re having now. I checked the Accuweather long-range forecast and, if accurate, we are beginning rainy season early (most typically it starts in May). It is also called “The Green Season” and is my favorite time of year!

Except for rain pounding down on the driveway, I haven’t been able to photograph rain around my house so it shows up very well in the pix, but here’s two from past trips that show up a little better. That one from Selva Verde (feature photo at top online) shows rain pouring off the roof of my cabin by the river, while my house here in Atenas has gutters all the way around, thus never having that same effect.

I Feel Most At Peace When It Is Raining For It Reminds Me That The Sky Is Alive.

  1. It appears we both possess magical powers!
    You can cause copious rain just by watering your garden——
    I am known to cause immediate and unexpected sunshine just by building a nice big fire in the wood stove thereby overheating the house.
    ( we live in a passive solar home)

    We should hire out our special skills.
    Hoping today is a better day for you.

  2. Thanks for sharing your powers Steve! 🙂

    This afternoon it is raining again – yay! And the rain kind of concludes a heavy day for me today with two dental fillings at 9 and eyelid surgery at 11 which was very painful. But now I get to rest for about a week before getting into the radiotherapy.

    1. I just don’t know what to say about the unfair pain you are going through. Just get better. We need your optimism, your good cheer, your pictures and blurbs of the day. Besides we owe you a steak dinner and I believe in fulfilling my debts.

      1. Steve, “This too shall pass,” an Abraham Lincoln quote or the quote I’m about to use in today’s (Saturday) blog post:

        I have learned now that while those who speak about one’s miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more. C. S. Lewis

        Thus I don’t want to “hurt more.” 🙂
