It Was A Dark and Rainy Day

It is a rainy day.....after a couple of rainy nights. This image was taken just a few minutes ago from the terrace. Friday night it started to rain before we finished grilling our dinner on the patio. It let up off and on before we went to bed but about 11:00 PM it started to thunder and rain and that continued until about 9:00 AM Saturday. Then the weather cleared and the sun came out. We had errands to do and the humidity was reminiscent of Houston. Sweat was running off my forehead as we unloaded the car. The weather cooled in the evening and when we walked home from dinner in the Centro, it was very nice. But sometime during the night, the rain started in again. As you can tell from this peek at the patio from the terrace, we are still in a mist. The rain on Friday night filled the pond to within a inch of the top. But the fish don't seem to mind the rain at all. A peek at the terrace. The terrace isn't quite like I want it to be....yet. But we have some wrought iron pieces coming and I think that will bring it all together. The tree in the big pot is a lime tree and if you look closely, you will see that it has limes on it. Our Margarita Machine.

Part of our family will arrive tomorrow for a visit. I'm hoping that the San Miguel Weather Man will turn on the very best San Miguel weather for them.

Deb, we had rain again last night. The farmers always need the rain but I'm hoping that it isn't as much this week as it was last week.

I'm so excited to have the family here.

Hope the weather turns fabulous and the family made it safely. Tell Betsy, the Baseball Babes say hello! Post some pictures of the mountains so the low-landers here in Houston can gawk in awe.

Family is here safe and sound. But we are busy, busy. Will try to post some pix of all the fun soon.

Hope you guys are having a wonderful time. I'm back in Houston, so no idea what's up with weather there, but hope the sun is shining and the days are not too warm.
