Hurricane Season Opens Early: When It Rains, It Seems to Pour In San Pedro
May 22, 2012|Ambergris Caye
The hurricane season seems to be starting early. Tropical Depression Alberto hovers off the coast of the Carolinas and Tropic Storm Bud (interesting choice of names) sits off the west coast of Mexico. The official start of the season isn’t for another week (June 1st).
Though the storms are not very close to us, the whole Caribbean is still swirling and we are sandwiched right in the middle…
We’ve had four days of grey, drizzly weather with heavy rains at night. As many Belizeans will tell you…”good baby making weather”.
Despite what I thought were brightening skies yesterday afternoon…
and an okay evening (gave us just enough time to celebrate the San Pedro Sun‘s editor and owner’s birthday…Happy Birthday Tamara!)
last night was no exception – heavy HEAVY rains with thunder and lightening. (Almost 3 inches of rain between 9pm and 5am). The run-off from the hotels and houses dug trenches in the beach overnight…
Today seems to be starting a bit brighter. Hopefully that is the trend…I need to get out of the house a bit so I have more to talk about than just the weather.
