During the dry season in Panama (mid December through mid May) we have to deal with numerous grass fires which originate pesky black ashes that clutter our terraces and porches .  This is how our back terrace looked like last Friday morning.  Not a pretty sight, isn’t it?

  1. Yes Richard. Nieve is considered a femenine gender, therefore it should be negra instead of negro. In Spanish we are very concerned about the gender of things; even if they are inanimate objects.

    Good for you Richard, Spanish is sinking in. Call me and we could chat in Spanish, just for the fun of it.



  2. OH, my. When they burn the cane fields in Louisiana, or the wildlife refuges closer to home, and the wind is from the east, that’s the sort of stuff that floats in and can really mess up a coat of varnish. The pieces never are that big, but they don’t have to be.

  3. So you understand how frustrated and irritated we feel everyday when we find this black stuff in our back terrace. Every single day until the rains return. As Richard pointed out, it’s our “black snow”.
