A rainy co-inkydink................... #127421

Yesterday at about noonish it started to pour here - like the monsoon season hit the Caribbean. Today, just about noon we were sitting on the pool deck and would you believe.......yup! It's pouring buckets again. We made it back to the front door, having just finished lunch by the pool, and the raindrops started falling. And I do mean falling. You could hear the first droplets plopping on the sidewalk and front entry way tiles. We're on the 7th floor and can barely see the pool bar or any of Point Pirouette, both of which are usually visually prominent from our balcony.

And I'm thinking it will probably clear out just as fast as it moved in but this is another couple of SXM first for us - rain two days in a row and today it's even got company in the name of thunder and lightning. Never before in all our years of visits..... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" />

And unbelievably, as I'm writing this, it sounds like the rain is already abating........too late, I'm ready to snugly in for an afternoon nap!


Respectfully,

pat

mahobeachcam looks gruesome! And there are a couple of planes in holding patterns right now, waiting to land. Stay dry!

It's already abating and thank goodness, we brought the chair cushions in off the balcony so pretty soon we'll be back out there, I'm sure. I've got the airco off, the ceiling fans on and the sliders open enjoying the gentle breezes! Aha! I can see the poolbar and Pt Pirouette again - a very good sign!


Respectfully,

pat

I see the airport is now closed for arrivals due to heavy weather and rain. Not a good way to start out or end a vacation.

Looks like AAL 1753 from CLT to SXM is now heading to SJU. They have been circling for about 1 1/2 Hours. John

Guess that's why its called the tropics... All the lush vegetation and greenery... I guess when you on vacation this means very little... But palm trees would never grow where I live in Pa... Have been there many times for huge downpours, and roads that were inpassable due to floods. But forget all about it when the sun comes out...

Monday through Friday was outstanding, picture perfect..light winds and sunny skies...so had to rain some time... five perfect days to two rainy days...I think that was a fair trade.
