It feels like it's been raining for days here in on Ambergris Caye.  On New Year's Eve, we had a terrific storm with howling sustained winds in the 30 mph range and gusts in the low 40s.  The San Pedro Town rain gauge measured .89" of rain for the day.  

New Year's Day again brought windy conditions with a 41 mph high gust, and even more rain.  It rained on and off from lunchtime on.  The San Pedro gauge measured 1.49" of rain for the day when I logged off at around 10 pm.  

This morning we awoke to solidly gray skies and steady rain, just like the ugly February weather we often had in North Carolina.  Thankfully I did not have to commute to work in it this time!  We had a few mornings like this here in San Pedro in September and October, but we're coming into the dry season now and had been mostly dry in December, so steady morning rain is very unusual.  The town gauge now shows 2.18" of rain since midnight and just over 4" for the 24 hour period.  

This is a good day to stay inside, nurse my cold, and dream about days like the one in the photo below.

You'll be glad to know that the rain is all gone, Loretta. This morning we have bright sunshine, but it's much cooler with blustery NW winds. Still, a winter "cold front" here sure beats one in the US! We look forward to saying hello to your husband when he is here.
