Rain, rain…

November 2008 was unusually rainy, even for this time of the year at the end of the hurricane season.  Local flooding was so severe that the waters washed away roads, caused landslides and damaged crops. It was even alleged that someone’s pool slid down a hillside, but I haven’t managed to visually confirm that as yet.

Here are some pictures from my (shore-side) work place to give an idea of the kind of daily deluge we were under.

    I’m giggling at “shore-side”.

    Seriously, the photos are awesome. People love it when I post photos on my blog, and I never even showed them the pig head.

    @ maria: I’m blocking all thoughts of the pig’s head from my mind. Arrgh!
    @ lifeonarock: Yikes. I had heard the south of the island was REALLY wet. Hey! At least the rain isn’t cold! 😀
