Early Lights in Panama City, Panama

Sometimes when I check the skies early in the morning, I see menacing dark clouds indicating that later in the day there will be raining cats and dogs.  As the day progresses, the sun intensifies and the expected rainfall evaportes like the precious water in our countryside.  The drought continues…

This leads me to believe that Mother Nature is playing tricks on us.  Take a look.

  1. The good news is that you have humidity. If you didn’t, there wouldn’t be those clouds. When our 2011 drought was so bad, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, for weeks. They are beautiful, aren’t they? I hope they bring rain for you sooner rather than later.

    1. Morning Linda:

      Last year I told my wife that in the future, people would be praying for water to fall from the sky. At that time, nobody even thought about the scarcity of water. People were happy lavishing watering their lawns with hoses, washing their cars with hoses, filling to the brim their plastic swimming pools to their heart’s content, taking long showers and so forth. Water at that time was an endless resource.

      The picture is very different today. Rivers and streams are dry and rainfall is not expected until May or June. The drought is on. We are in for a waterless environment for a long time.

      Hope is what keeps us going. We should never lose hope no matter how abundant and black those clouds look like early in the morning.

      Best Regards,


  2. Hola Omar,
    I have been tricked the other direction in Panama, too. Brilliant morning sky and 4PM +/- 15 minutes it is raining like a waterfall. I used to think I was the only clueless person in Panama then I noticed everyone gets tricked by Ma Nature. The good news is that 30 minutes later everything changes again.

    Best to just “go with the flow”.
