Latitude 17N

Friday, October 21, 2005

Rain has been one crappy week. The weather has been rainy or overcast for most of the week. On Wednesday...beach day...the sky was blue with a few clouds in the morning. I was so happy. We got over to Cades Bay which was a mess. We walked down the beach a ways and found a nice clear spot to hang out. It was a different group than we've been having lately. Allison is back with her little baby Samara. She is about 6 or 7 weeks old. She is very cute and sleeps a lot! Carol came along with Yiyi. Janet also came with her kids. Almost everyone left a little bit early because they had stuff to do and I was sitting there with Janet, the kids were out in the water playing. Janet looked over and said "I wonder if that is going to open up on us, it sort of looks like it's raining over there or is it just a cloud on the mountain?" I looked over and felt a raindrop. I told her I was packing up and getting ready to bolt. We got most of our stuff picked up when the big raindrops started pouring down. We got the kids out and started running to our cars. We were soaked by the time we got there. And from then on it has been raining off and on. Today it is gray and has been raining pretty much all day. We lost electricity for a bit this morning but it was before we got up. We have been losing electricity about 5 times a week for the past couple of months for 1/2 hr to 2 hours at a stretch. Usually at night. But the road construction is down the road far enough now that we haven't been losing water lately which is good! And that pretty much sums up the week. Not too exciting. The campus pool is up and running, filled with nice clean, cold water. I can't wait for the sun so we can get back in there.


  • Yeah, a bit o' green can make even rainy days seem sunny! I will build a house on Nevis when I hit big!
