Weather Woes

Evidently Olga did not dissapate as thought. We got walloped last night.

All day yesterday was windy and rainy with only minor peeks of the sun. The waves were coming in fast, furious and one on top of the other. A sure sign that something is going on out to sea. Just before dark was when it really started to get fun.

We heard the wind first and knew what was coming. We raced to shut the windows before the rain was upon us. It came down in buckets. Except somebody was throwing buckets of water sideways! The wind was driving the rain horizontally at us. It always seems so strange to see rain like that instead of coming straight down.

It kept up all night. Howling, raging winds. It sounded like a hurricane. We finally turned the TV off because we couldn't hear it anyway. During one of the breaks, we shooed the cats out to do their business. Otherwise they got to spend the whole night in the house. The weather out there was that bad.

I don't know why I'm up and about already this morning. I hardly got any sleep. The wind kept howling and whistling through the slats in the windows all night long. And the sound of the ocean was incredible. I hate weather like this.

This morning is cloudy but no rain so far. The waves are huge. So huge that the wind is taking the tops of them as they break. White foamy spray flying everywhere.

Guess it will be mostly an indoor day today. Have a great weekend and see you on Monday!

Wow, sounds like you really got whacked! I'm sure hoping it's passed, we're supposed to take a night cruise to the island tonight for our company posada, I doubt we'll head out if the weather is still bad.

We kept doggie Lola inside last night too, poor girl was scared by the rain.

Wayne, wow, what a difference a few kilometers makes. Yesterday the ocean and the bay were as flat as glass! We had drizzle off and on most of the day, and only a couple of showers.
This morning, the wind and waves have picked up but nothing more than we get during a normal storm.
