It seems to me that the 2016 rainy season has indeed begun.

Mother Nature is expressing herself. Yesterday morning at 7:22am was a 3.6 temblor. After our housekeeper arrived, we had a conversation about the difference between un temblor (a tremor) and un terremoto (earthquake); she said it is a matter of magnitude/intensity and duration, a subjective call more often than not. And then late yesterday, while we were on the phone with the USA, there was one blast of thunder so strong that our house shook violently. The lightning was not seen, unusual given its close proximity, but the thunder certainly was heard (deafening) and felt. The other party on the phone said "my gosh, what was that explosion?". That was followed by rain so hard that we could not see the fence, which is just scant meters from the house. And here it is nearly 4:00am and rain, not really heavy, but rain. In one way, this is a thing of beauty.
