First rain of the year

At least I don't remember any rain in January and am sure none for the following months.

It started last night with  CFE working on the lines at 4 AM. Fans went off and bathroom light went off 4 times. Then a bunch of short cut offs. Up in the clouds lighting started before they were done. I hoped they didn't stop and come back the next day.

The lightning and thunder got closer and finally let loose around 5 AM and the lights flickered a few more times like we always get with first rains. A good soaking and the smell of wet earth is refreshing. Going to check the place out and see how much dust was washed away

Finally a new mattress

Finally bought a new mattress (Colchón) at Muebles Hogar in Melaque. I was surprised at the quality without breaking the bank. It was getting hard to find a flat spot in the old one. Sleeping better for sure and it's reversible. 

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.
