First Rain of 2017

On March 14, 2017, just after 4:00pm, we had our first decent rainfall in months. I took this video of the cooling tropical rain falling after so many months of dryness.

Not a drop since then, at least at our house. Now that April is close, we hope to see more rain in the coming weeks. The landscape is very dry and brown right now.


  1. Reminds me of my days in Mexico. The rainy season always began on the same weekend, preceded by chirping from "raincaller" bugs.

  2. I just asked my wife and she said they were little tree frogs. The natives are a suspicious lot. I remember once when there was a solar eclipse and they tied red cloths to all of the fruit trees to prevent the fruit from dying!
