Rainy Season Successful

A friend who has lived here for nearly two decades tells me we are now back to a “normal” rainy season in San Francisco, Nayarit, MX.  What he means is that this year is more typical of what he recalls.  And that the past couple of years were ‘below normal’ for rainfall.

I’ve found that sometimes I have trouble remembering what day of the week it is in this endlessly peaceful and tranquil paradise, much less how much rain we’ve had in the past.  Maybe that’s why I like the idea of having the weather station so I can really find out what happened last year.  Or yesterday!

Bottom line for September seems to be 10 inches of rain.  And for the year we’ve got about 36 inches.  That’s about 9 inches more than last  year and the rainy season I’m told runs through October.

In any case, we’ve seen our rio running daily for the past couple of weeks and the gardener hasn’t had to do any watering in a long time.  So I assume we have a happy, full acquifer underneath us.  I hope so.

I’ve had many comments about the new presentation on the web site and I’m appreciative.  For both the positive and critical comments.  Keep them coming and I’ll be looking to improve the site in the weeks and months to come.

If you are interested in year to year comparisons on the weather, remember there’s a “Year to Date” tab in the menu.  Check that for a quick glance at where we stand.  Or for an overwhelming amount of detail, just go to our page at the Weather Underground … you’ll find the link on our “links” (amazing!) page.

Enjoy the moderating temperatures ahead.
