Almuñécar gets about 340 days of sunshine, and since we are nowhere near the Plains in Spain, I figured it would be a good while before we saw any rain here. Well, I’m glad to report that it’s currently raining (more of a drizzle). It’s funny seeing people walking on the streets carrying umbrellas.Local weather reports show possible thunderstorms, so I’ll try to take pictures if any interesting comes our way. The ocean was very rough yesterday making for some very interesting waves.
When I started this post yesterday (Wednesday), it looked like the drizzle was going to stop. It’s now Thursday, and we’ve been having a real rain. Streets are getting flooded, and while there are less people out and about, most of those who are braving the weather are sporting umbrellas.
It’s so nice seeing some different weather, and I’ve been told that it hasn’t rained here in about 8 months, so it’s definitely warranted. I’m not sure what weather we’ll experience this fall and winter, but I’m excited at the prospect of something different. We’re already getting spoiled with the sunny Mediterranean weather.
The Rain arrived!
