No Foolin Here

03 Apr

For sure there is a full drought on.  The well drillers are making a good living this year for sure.  The problem is that most people can not afford a well and depend on the city water system.  The folks in Cocles get water every other day for only 4 hours in the morning so you can imagine when all those taps are turned on at the same time if you are at the end of the line all you get is a small trickle.

So far this year we have had 13 inches of rain, normally we get 35 inches by now so we are about 63% below average.  I am having to change the scale on my charts so when it does rain you can actually see it.  The weather service has come out with its prognosis for the remaining year and it looks like we will remain very dry thru the end of June.  July thru December should be back to normal but will have a lot of catching up to do.

A by product of all this dry weather has been the sunsets and sunrises!  It may look like rain but not a drop to be had.

Hopefully all of our plants will make it thru this very dry time and come out kickin butt when the rains finally do return!   Pura Vida (seca)……………
