Ya Gotta Luv The Rainy Season

For me, this is the best time of year in Panama. I love the rainy season. The last few days have had consistent rain and the days have been wonderful.

Luckily the rainy season is longer than the dry season. Lilliam and I get all of our running around done in the morning and have the rest of the day to enjoy the freshness that comes with the rain.

Not that the rainy season doesn’t have its problems. Depending on where you live, it can be a little extreme. I know some bike riders that prefer the dry season. Also, there is always a danger of problems caused by the rain. Sometimes roads become closed, bridges may disappear, there may be landslides, and rivers can overrun their normal boundaries.

When I lived in Boquete, I used to keep a dehumidifier running in the closets to lower the mold problem. I had to pitch all of my VHS tapes and threw out many leather products until I understood the prevention.

Now in David, I don’t have those problems. I can swim in the mornings and watch the rain in the afternoons and my closets don’t require a dehumidifier. It just doesn’t get better than this.

As a side note, I want to thank all the email writers that have written to see if I am OK or if I am planning on closing the blog. My plans are to continue the blog, but I have more than I can keep up with at the moment.

I also am having a problem with my eyes that will require laser surgery and the appropriate machine is not available in Panama to perform the surgery, so it will have to be postponed.

The problem my be seen in my posts because it is more difficult to check my writing and missing letters or misspelled words are easily missed.

I will try to keep the one liners going, but available time will dictate how much I post.

It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day. Go out and enjoy it.

  1. Rainy season was always my favorite. In the canal zone it seemed to rain at 4PM +/- 20 minutes? By 5PM it was just drizzle lasting until 7PM. Everyone would look for cover at the first drops then go about their business once the downpour lessened. Never a problem.

    We had “heat lockers” for clothes; closets with 110 volt strip heaters to keep humidity at bay. I do not think it would be enough in the highlands like Bajo Boquete. Alto Boquete would probably be OK but then the winds up there are the problem. Downtown David can be hot but once outside the city the temps are very comfortable and the breezes are nice.

    Panama has more varieties of environment than anywhere.

  3. HOLA DON RAY: I HOPE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE AMD-WET AS I DO. WHAT HELPS ME WHEN WRITING IS TO CAPITALIZE ALL LETTERS AS THEY CAN BE SEEN BETTER. IT MAY AGGRAVATE SOME PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT YOU ARE YELLING BUT THEY JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND PEOPLE WITH VISION PROBLEMS.
    GOOD HEARING FROM YOU, I WAS GETTING WORRIED.

  4. No it is not Wet AMD. I have enlarged my word processor to 200% and that does a pretty good job. Some things still slip by, but less than ar normal presentation size.

  5. GLAD TO SEE YOU ARE BACK. I WAS WONDERING WHAT THE PROBLEMS WAS. I TOO HAVE EYE PROBLEMS, HENCE ALL CAPS. I DON’T WANT YOU TO MISS OUT ON THE BEAUTY OF LIFE IN PANAMA. COME TO THE U.S. & GET FIXED.

  6. So glad to hear from you again, I have really missed the one liners (and of course all the great comment on Panama and life in general.
