I was saying that

mircea_popescu aaand in other "global warming" lulz, costa rica has been beset by an... anti-tropical storm, with temperatures 10 degrees below period averages and winds in the 50kph+ range since yest.

Now I'm in a position to show! Remember that amicable little mountainside torrent ? Turns out we hadn't even seen its final form!



Pretty angry guy. There was serious flooding on another side of the hill, and generally throughout Costa Rica.

So here's a couple of houses just in case, you never know how long anything lasts after all.



Just as a friendly reminder, the amount of rain fallen here since my arrival exceeds the amount of rain fallen anywhere in my presence ever since I left ten twelve years ago. Or in a less majestic perspective, it's rained here so far to date about 250% of the average annual rainfall. That's for a whole year. And this discusses a country which includes areas with average 1000 mm/m2 rainfall.

I am seriously considering permitting the girls wear clothes again, and cutting back on the water sports. What can I say ?!
