Weather-wise, this November has been the best month we've experienced since moving to San Pedro fifteen months ago.  It was mostly dry, cooler than normal, with highs only in the upper 70s many days. Best of all, the humidity was so much lower than the norm that my skin and lips were dry and flaky, and I actually had a few good hair days -- with my wavy mop that tends towards frizz, that's saying a lot!  

But a couple of days ago, that all changed.  For the past two nights, we've had hours of heavy rain, a total of around five inches.  I guess our assumption that dry season might be beginning early this year was a bit premature.  I'll let the photos tell the rest of the story....

Here's the approaching storm late yesterday afternoon.
And some of the roads north of the bridge today.  These were all dry just a couple of days ago.

But we can't complain too much.  Without the rain, we wouldn't have the lush tropical foliage nor these beautiful flowers!

I don't mind the rain as long as I am inside when it comes. Storms in the tropics can blow up pretty quickly! But they do fill people's cisterns and keep the flowers and beautiful foliage green. Much better than drought!
