    10.45am - Rain and lots of it. Sky's are grey and it looks like the rain will be about most of the day.

    Thursday, 16 Sept. 7:11 pm.

    Early this morning tuned into the 5 am weather track page and left confident Santiago would at most get intense rains. At 7 am left for Santiago (in the center of the country). Only ran into rains after Bonao. We passed lots of public school children on their way to school. In Santiago, morning school went as normal, but afternoon classes were suspended. Was at the Centro Leon which closed to the general public at 3 pm. On the way up from there it was raining, but there were no winds. In Santiago, it was just a rainy day, nothing out of the usual. On the way back, it was the same, until around Villa Altagracia where the rains were gone and the clouds left space for some blue skies. Rest of the drive into Santo Domingo was without rain. It is not raining in Santo Domingo.

    The performance of this storm, though shows again one has to be prepared once a big storm is in the vicinity and wait for it to pass, monitoring it closely.

    Some wind and light raining in the Julieta area of Santo Domingo this morning. Sun's not out yet, but I would assume the city is covered by gray storm clouds. Probably the intensity of the rain will step up later. Would say it is about 27C.

    Intermittent rains. Some strong gusts of rain, on and off. City seems to be totally overcast. Chilly, would say about 25C. On the positive side. Some wind gusts.

    I suppose you and I are feeling the brunt of the wind Dolores. Our buildings have no other buildings around. The wind howling here sounds creepy, and our potted palm trees lie horizontally.

    I'd say the temp. should be more around 21C or so... it feels hotter inside. I am sick and tired of the damn rain already.

    For the most of the day it has not rained in Santo Domingo, nor has there been winds. Only an intermittent light drizzle, once in a while.

    Dark clouds line the north side of the city, so could be we get some rains in the evening.

    And can someone explain why we have power all day long? The exception to the rule of the past months. Oh, well, not complaining... has been a pleasure to spend the day without the noise of blackouts.

    P.S.
    Me and my big mouth... an hour after I said that, there goes the power. Well, was just too good to be true -- but still had a record number of power from the public system. Back up systems kicked in.

    9:52 pm. Weird layer of white/gray clouds in the sky tonight, separated the white from the gray by a thin layer of pink. Only a drizzle of rain. Chilly -- would say 23C. Slight breeze.

    Thanks ever so much again for the updates, Dolores. Funny, my special Dominican novia friend had called me shortly this evening before reading your last post and said that it was chilly too in Santo Domingo. So, being that you reported the temperature approximation at 23C, it left me puzzling as to what that translated to in Farenheit for an old Statesider.

    So, for all you readers like me, take the number of degrees Celsius and multiply by 9. Divide that number by 5, then add 32. Based on 23C, that would translate to 73 degrees Farenheit (73.4 to be exact).

    Having experienced the sweltering heat and humidity each day during my recent August visit, I would agree 73 degrees to be on the cool side too.

    12:26 am... still hardly no rain, but an enormous white cloud splits the skies into a dark and white area.
