Moderator - Covid 19 in DR & North Coast
- Jan 7, 2016
Got some last night. More thunder than I have heard in many, many years. Kept me awake for a couple of hours.
Many expats trying to cope with intermittent electricity and water supply and other living frustrations in the DR can relate to John’s lyrics in “You don’t have to call me darling, darling”.As John Prine wrote in 'Angel From Montgomery':
"If dreams were lightning, and thunder were desire
This old house would have bunt down a long time ago".
And again last night.Yes, lots of thunder but little rain last night
Storms were about 30 miles out in the water
I have one of those
She’s 14 yrs old
Ran away in one a few weeks ago, we gave her up for dead
10 days later she came back exhausted
Someone had her b/c she had lost no weight
Looks like more than a foot of water from the recent storms...... and it's raining again now!!!And again last night.
Electrical storms were a bit closer and a lot of rain
What weather we're having..... I hope others are getting the rain they need.........We are !!
I’m partial to Bonnie Raitt‘s cover. Her voice gives the lyrics a special touch. The torrential rainfall is good but it runs off quickly. Every bit helps but what’s needed is normal rainfall over extended periods to fully recharge the aquifers and less extended drought periods. That would benefit DR agriculture the most.Susan Tedeschi’s version was the best.
