Presage of Rainfall

In theory Panama should be in a transition to the dry season.  In the past, the transition date was roughly December 15th of every year.  This is not happening.  Recently we had a weather debacle with much destruction brought by Hurricane Otto.  So far the rains are still here.

The image above, was captured three days ago.  I’m afraid we will still need an umbrella whenever we leave our homes.  “Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.  Little Johnny wants to play.”

Good Day!

  1. It wasn’t that long ago that you were pining away, hoping for rain! We all do it, don’t we? Here in Texas, everyone was grumping about the heat and humidity, and when the cold weather finally showed up, we were saying to one another, “Well, we didn’t really want it THIS cold!”

    Nature does what nature will do, but you’ve taken good advantage of the opportunity to photograph some nice rain clouds.

  2. Yes, Linda. It is very vivid in my memory the horrible time of the drought early this year. It was one of the driest year in Panama since we started to keep scientific records. Our rainy season was moderate this year. I don’t know what will happen in 2017. Some pundits say it will be wet, while others say the contrary. Whatever will be will be, as Doris Day used to saing in one of her songs, “Que Será, Será”

    I love to look at the sky early in the morning, as you already know. Some days, the scenery is absolute gorgeous. Not this time. The clouds were gray and black—but neverthe less, interesting to watch.
