Speaking of “la nada” it sure holds up to it’s name, the nothing. Kind of sounds like a Stephen King novel, “The Nothing”! Actually it is a weather phenomena like El Nino or La Nina, except it is nothing. Our weather here has been just that, nothing except clear blue skies, bright sunny days and warm temperatures. Only clocking 1/2 inch of rain so far this month is not so uncommon except there is nothing on the horizon that might suggest a change otherwise. After all this is the “rain” forest, but no rain.
The reason why I mention this weather thing is that I have a small weather station installed at the house that logs daily temps, humidity, rainfall, pressure and other things. The government used to operate a station in Manzanillo, but that stopped working years ago, so when things stop here they normally do not start back up. I publish this data on Wunderground.com. The station id is ILMONPU2.
I hope this will help people keep informed about the weather here since the closest station is in Limon at the never used airport and usually does not reflect our weather here very well and I can log a full year or more. Pura Vida!
