Wet Wednesday In Puerto Rico ~

 Rain hangs about the place, like a friendly ghost.
 if it's not coming down in delicate droplets, then 
it's in buckets; and if neither, it tends to 
lurk suspiciously in the atmosphere...

Beautiful yet stormy days is what we have been 
experiencing for quite some time now.  Arvid and I usually 
sit on the balcony in the afternoons, but it's been over
 a week now we have not been able to do so 😱

Yesterday we celebrated our 19th Anniversary at home. 
 Very nice and quiet.  It rained all day long so we just stayed in. 
 Arvid watched some soccer and I enjoyed a little reading.

The sun never showed up yesterday.  Today not
 looking any better, but like I am usually told, at least
 it's warm.  Yes, it is warm.  Very much so 🌞

I have been lucky that in the mornings when I go out to
 walk it is not raining heavily.  At least not when I start out. 
 I enjoy my walks, but also I have to go because
 the kitties are waiting for their food 🐈🍤.

  Yesterday I managed to give them food before the
 torrential rains began.  Yes, I got soaked, but didn't matter. 
 They were fed and happy as was I.  I don't mind the
 rain as long as my phone is protected 📱.

With all of this rain, Arvid is creating chores to do
 while we stay in.  He has to always stay busy.  Me too.
  Also the grounds are so fertile right now that beautiful
🍄 mushrooms are growing.  I wonder if they are edible.

Arvid is a happy camper.  Sometimes when he 
watches soccer he takes a little snooze.  And I'm right
 there to capture the moment.  He's not always thrilled 
about it, but I am.  The look on his face is priceless.

More rain awaits us, but if we were back home in
 Fort Lauderdale it won't be any different.  In fact Fort 
Lauderdale has had 86.57 inches of rain in 2020which
 is already 24.39 inches more than a normal year.

A man walks a flooded street in his Fort Lauderdale
 neighborhood Monday. Tropical Storm Eta caused 
severe flooding in South Florida in areas already 
saturated from previous downpours.  No bueno.

As of right now, Miami and Fort Lauderdale have shattered
 annual rainfall totals. Residents walk a flooded street to reach 
their homes,  Monday, Nov. 9, 2020 in Fort Lauderdale,

There is a new tropical storm hovering around the area.
  All this means is that the rain is not yet over.  Wishing
 everyone a happy Wednesday.  Hopefully dryer than what
 we are having.  Now it's time for some dry weather again.

A single gentle rain makes the grass many shades greener...
