I just love Belize Met (seriously!):

Tues - some showers

Wed - several showers

Thurs - a few showers

If the rain right now is a "shower", don't show me a bath! Yikes, I think you need snuba to go outside.

This week should be a good test of the culvert in the East West road project. I wonder if its all the way across the lagoon yet.
Sure is nice to have all that grime washed off of everything!

cobblestones? oh is that what you guys bought with our tax dollars!
The rain is very much needed.
Its all soaking in right now like its filing up a low aquifer.
The ground feels more solid.

I hope I am allowed to post this here and not scare anybody. We are truly blessed on this island. After our deluge the worst we have to cope with is some mossies, a few extra frogs and plants growing very very fast. The people of Haiti are not so fortunate.

*********

From Jeff Masters - about next week:
Potential serious rainfall threat to Haiti next week
Long-range forecasts from the GFS and NOGAPS models over the past few days have consistently been predicting an increase in moisture and decrease in wind shear over the Western Caribbean 5 - 7 days from now, and I expect that a tropical disturbance with heavy rains will develop in the Western Caribbean early next week. A strong subtropical jet stream over the southern Gulf of Mexico will steer the disturbance to the north and east, and the NOGAPS model shows heavy rains in excess of six inches impacting Haiti Wednesday through Thursday of next week. Rains of this magnitude are capable of causing a serious emergency with high loss of life in earthquake-shattered Haiti, and all interests in that nation should closely monitor the situation over the coming week. It is too early to speculate on the possibility of the disturbance becoming a tropical depression. The wunderblogs of StormW and Weather456, who are now featured bloggers for the coming hurricane season, have more information on this potential development, plus the possible development of a subtropical storm between Florida and Bermuda next week.

By the way, Frogs croak to attract females and all that noise in the back is going to make tadpoles.They have been waiting for some guarantee of enough water to raise their young. looks like they read Jeff Masters also.
