Wild Weather on Bonaire

We continue to have wild and rainy weather here on Bonaire. We had a major thunder storm and wind reversal at noon on Tuesday. The power was out all afternoon. Both our internet connections at the office were out too. The Telbo one is still out because the Telbo relay tower about 50 yards from our house took a direct hit. The storm had been sort of dying down and then all of a sudden, BLAAM. It was loud and bright. I don't think we need to worry about our house getting hit, with that nice tall lightning rod right near by.

We've had rain early every morning, so I'm biking in the evening after work. I still get wet sometimes, but at least it's warm water.

Check out these plots from the weather station at the Bonaire Web Cams. The rainfall rates and the wind direction graphs will tell the story. They will also help you answer the "what's wrong with this picture" quiz. Click on the picture to make it bigger.Posted by Hello

There is lots of standing water all over the place. The mosquitos are out in force and the little Bonairian mud puddle frogs are roaring up a storm each night.
