Panama Winter

Winter in Panama is marked by the first day of rain in about 6 months. Today is a teaser with rain clouds circling the valley and thunder bumping in the distance,  

 

 and everyone here keeps looking up, eager to feel the first rains since December. Today looks like rain, but the locals are saying it will rain April 19th. Educated guess or some type of crystal ball?  Who really can tell?   

 

Last year it was about May 1st. Looks like rain today, and it would be nice to hear and smell and feel the change. For now I will wait out the evening in the hammock and keep an eye on things.

  1. Love how atmospheric this is. The clouds look so heavy…expectant. And the ground looks thirsty. I hope it rains soon.
