Here in Jarabacoa there has been rain every afternoon, and then again at night for more a week. Some are not heavy rainfalls burt some are torrential downpours for several hours. I guess it is a hit and miss on what areas are getting rain.

discussing this same problem earlier today while the servants
were washing our helicopters :cheeky:

And we'll get more rain into the foreseeable future. The northwest isn't so lucky.

But at least our streams are filling and it'll all go down toward Presa Tavares and give the people in Santiago some relief...then head to the northwest.

Here is Jarabacoa we've had 1-2" every day for almost two weeks. I am taking water *out* of the pool.

In the mountains, even worse. And the ground is no longer perking.

So a lot of this water has to be getting downstream by now.

Driving back and forth from Santiago to the capital I was checking out the rivers/streams and they were roaring rapids. Hopefully we get past the drought.
One problem I read last year was the one of the reservoirs could only hold a fraction of the original volume due to the fact that it had not been dredged for too long. If that still is the case it will continue to cause problems and water shortages every time a dry spell comes to the country.

Some showers in Sosua but not enough to make up for the lack of rain before this week.
