Rainy Season

Well, its for real! The rain is here! After a few days of nothing but cloudy skies and lots of torrential down pours, its safe to say the rainy season has officially begun. There was even flooding in several places. And I heard that the road between here and Taoca was closed due to high water, but that seems to have been short lived.
At night the rain pounding on the metal roof is deafening! We have to shout to hear each other. We also lost power several times and with the heavy rain, very little sunlight gets through so we were eating by candle light even during the day.
This picture is a little odd since its on the diagonal, but I wanted to capture the river coming off the roof and the one rushing down the driveway too. It is amazing how much water can collect in just a few minutes.
