Belize Update

rainy Sunday

The 2012 "dry" season wasn't very dry for us here in Belize.  After last year's drought, it was a nice change of pace to have enough water in the cistern and nice green plants in the yard all the way into April !

The rainy season has arrived early and with enthusiasm.   Our cistern is already overflowing and ordinarily that doesn't happen until much later in the summer.  

Weather on Ambergris Caye:
Last night it rained heavily, wind gusts were to 35 MPH and there was some not to dramatic (probably quite distant) thunder and lightening.  Today the winds are blowing from the south, the sea is choppy with white-caps inside the reef.   

Unfortunately we'd scheduled a big fund-raiser Bar-B-Q for Liberty Children's Home for today and this weather is causing a reschedule.   About 500 tickets for bar-b-q were sold, hull-hoop contests were planned and the silent auction gift-list is amazing.  Early morning calls concurred that you just can't have a good kid-party in a muddy yard in the rain.  Bummer.    Will have to reschedule.   
If you're interested in some wonderful work being done in Belize with abandoned and abused children, check the Liberty website -

Enjoy the day!
