Heat and Humidity–the end of Rainy Season

Well, I haven’t posted much in this Rainy Season because :

1.  how many pictures of rain drops do you want to see, really?

2. it has been an unusual Rainy Season (in my terminology)  because it isn’t quite following the normal pattern.

I am speaking of the pattern where the day gets hotter and hotter and more and more humid until at about 4:00PM it rains for about 5 minutes, and then the rain stops, the temperature has fallen a bit and, the rain goes somewhere else and rains there for 5 minutes, all along the coast for the rest of the afternoon.

I’m also working in an office with no windows so if it is raining each afternoon, I can’t tell. 

Meanwhile, the whole country seems to be experiencing an unusually hot “Summer” season.  Is this due to Global Warming or to a natural fluctuation in climate cycles?  Or, is Global Warming making our normal cycles, exaggerated?  Who really knows?

At any rate, here we are almost at the end of Rainy Season.

  1. Gee, even working long hours in a large power station with no windows we always seemed to know if it was raining. May have been the great airflow through the place or something – we could maybe smell the rain mixed with all of that outside air?

    Our strange weather might mostly be El Nino weather patterns with a few global warming notes mixed in? I don’t know how to put in the accent mark in Nino (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/weather/uk_and_roi/article7134047.ece)

    I enjoy your blogs and enjoy hearing about Rhett and Agatha.

    1. Hi James~.
      (When I am writing “El Nin~o,” I put the tilda after the character it is supposed to go on top of. I don’t know if that is pc or not, but…)

      The building has a few windows but it is solid; I can’t even get cell phone calls in it! Texts come through at about real time. The only way I know if it is raining is if it is torrential, then I can hear the water rushing across the roof and down a drain near my room.
      Best to you,
