It's Been Raining in Puerto Morelos!!

Yea! Three nights of rain! Woo-Hoo!

For those of you that haven't been in Puerto Morelos this summer, we've had the driest "rainy season" that I have ever experienced! While we normally get daily to twice daily showers this time of year, we've had zip, zero, nada in the way of the wet stuff.

Our mangrove was bone dry and the bottom had deep cracks from being baked in the sun. A few weeks ago, Puerto Morelos Police had traffic blocked on the highway for crocodile had that headed out of the mangrove and onto the highway in search of damper digs.

Hopefully, the rain will keep coming!

[IMPORTANT NOTE TO RAIN GODS AND THE LIKE: The fact that we need rain, and the fact that we are happy about its arrival, does NOT indicate that we are in need of or want any hurricanes to supplement our lack of rainfall. Thank you.]
