April 30th, 5 pm and right on time it’s raining like crazy. Mother Gaea is consistent if anything. It will rain all evening and every day thereafter same as ever. I have learned to time my shopping according to the afternoon rain. After 3 pm it’s too late, you’re gonna get wet. It, however, is a tropical rain, the weather hot during the day (95 F yesterday) and less hot when it’s raining in the afternoon. Saturday I leave for the States. Hello Seattle. See ya.
