Raindrops are falling...

"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." ~Dolly Parton

It's raining over most of T&T... it's cool and fabulous and most of us are thankful because everyone's been praying for rain. We've been in a drought. Water levels at our main reservoirs have been at all-time lows. Water has been rationed according to areas serviced. Bulletins have gone out to inform the populace about water conservation. Water tanks are sold out and there are waiting lists for when the hardware/stores get them. Overall, we've been having a lot of lack-of-water-drama. It speaks to me of a lack of awareness and preparedness... poor governance... a lot of things that should be looked at by both the populace and the government. Will this happen? Maybe. Perhaps as more and more people realise and start talking about what's happening change will occur. 

In the meantime... it's raining... according to Yahoo! weather (and the T&T Met Office) we'll be getting showers for the rest of the week. Pack your umbrellas people... and wear shoes (or carry a spare pair) cuz we know there's gonna be floods as well. 

Forecast for tonight: Scattered thunderstorms this evening followed by a chance of showers overnight. Low 79F. Winds ESE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40%.
