Rains are Back

We've had some heavy rains here, beginning back on Thursday; probably has accumulated to over three inches by now.

One can find fairly detailed weather forcasts for Bonaire here. AND, "trumpet flourish", you can see a weather radar map of the ABC islands here. We just had a very heavy rain band pass over us and you can clearly see it on the weather radar display, especially the moving loop - if you have Java enabled. There were some yellow spots amidst the green on the display, and that must have been the downpour that hit us downtown.

I've checked out the satellite images of the Caribbean for years now, but local weather radar is a big step forward.
