It seems like it's always raining here in CR. Once September hits (sometimes October), it probably rains about 60- 75% of the time until May - making it very dreary if you can't handle the rain. Luckily, since I grew up here, I actually like the rain. In fact, I'm willing go out in it without rain coat, umbrella (useless here because of the wind), and sometimes without even a jacket. There's nothing better than sitting on the beach, watching the waves crest and break when a good ol' sou'easter hits (winds from the south east usually around 80 km/h or higher).
Unfortunately, with a 2.5 year old, I can't quite do things like I used to, so I tend not to take her down to the beach in a storm. So instead of nice stormy beach pics, you get to see the rain from my car. I know, I know, it's nowhere near as good, especially since these shots were taken just in a parking lot as I waited for J and C to leave a store this evening. But hey, rainy night pics can be good too!
