The rains have arrived early

12 03 2008

Not that I would have suspected while I was feeling smug yesterday morning, with a clear blue sky and burning hot sun here and England ravaged by a storm, but last night there was a big tropical storm with lots of lightning and torrential rain and it’s been raining continuously (although more lightly) since then. I could almost have been waking up in London this morning, with grey overcast skies and continual light rain. A fair bit warmer though.

 The actual start of the rain was interesting because it was preceded by a big dust storm and “dry” lightning. Normally this part of March is the hot season, the rains aren’t expected until April/May.
