First real rain

Just had our first real rain of the season with a "front" moving through. First foto is the squall line and by the time I got off the roof it was raining. Before long it was a real tropical downpour filling the streets and pouring off the roof. Been watching a tropical depression off the coast but it's still south of Manzanillo. Semi related I don't know but expect we'll see more rain over the next few days. This one was enough to start the greening process in the hills.

What I did learn is my CEL Modem reception really falls apart in the rain so adjustment time is here. Also after brick paving a section of lawn next to the house, standing water may become an issue. The gravel section I left for absorption filled right up. We'll see if this has to be re-engineered.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
