Hello to all,

the first dribbles of 96L are coming. The sky looks more dramatic than it really is. Currently, light showers falling, low wind blowing. However, the darkness in the photos attached is real.

The beginning of each file name indicates date and time of exposure [AST].

- Barbados getting a good quantity of rain

Hi to all,

todays day was one, actually the first one, to qualify Barbados as a "Rainy Season Club Member". We had plenty of rain here on and off. Strong and short, moderate and long. Some of everything. No thunderstorms as yet, eventhough forcasted as a possibility. Just now, as I was typing, lightning an thunder stroke about 1 km away from here.

That's it for today.

After severe drought conditions for many many weeks now, here in Barbados this past week two tropical waves were to pass through.  Needless to say I never got one drop of rain.  Other parts of the island did.  Today, starting this afternoon finally we are having RAIN, with high winds.  It is supposed to continue right through until tomorrow evening.  I do hope so.  The ground needs it. My grass is non existent and all my shrubs are practically dead. The farmers will be so happy with todays' outcome.  Even the extra work of 5 rescue dogs traipsing through my house with their muddy paws is today acceptable as long as it keeps raining for the next day or so..
