Today started with grey skies and no sun. Waves were crashing all night as another decent surf swell arrived with perhaps double overhead waves. Cloudy skies are no big deal. Usually this clears by noon.
It’s 12:20 pm now and it has been raining for about 20 minutes. Slow and steady, more than a drizzle but much less than a downpour. Puddles are beginning to form in the sandy dirt. It’s chilly and humid without the sun. Visibility is a few hundred meters and there really isn’t any wind.
Maybe the surfers are still in the water enjoying the swell.
It’s now 3:17 pm…the rain finally stopped at about 3 pm. The sun is peeking out. It’s more quiet than normal, the result of less outside work being done in the rain. The dust has been washed off the plants and roads for a while at least. All the colors seem richer. The skies are still more cloudy than not so it’s possible we will have more rain today.
