Puerto Rico Weather in June? Hot, real hot.

It seems that we forget how hot it gets here every summer by mid-December. The surf and the perfect beach weather by day and the cool breezes and perfect sleeping weather at night always takes away the sting of the brutal summer weather. Well, today, I was reminded of what we are in store for this summer. Have

I've said it before, but I'm not sure if I said it here. The summer time in Puerto Rico to me is all about work, fresh fruit/vegetables and planting. This weekend was a great weekend. I got tons of yard work done, Summer and I planted a bunch of new plants and we got dumped on by a

Sydney and I were swimming at the Marina with friends the other day, when the weather started changing...It went from nice and sunny to dark and windy within a matter of minutes.

Rainy Season is upon us and isn't shy. It has been rainy almost every day for the past three weeks. It isn't always an all day rain though, many of the days are just afternoon showers...lovely, humidity killing afternoon showers. The thunder was rumbling this morning when I got up and went into the office around 6:30 and

We could really use a couple days of rain. Rincon has been without a good rain shower in over a month and the land is showing it. This morning I had to drive out to Home Depot to grab a couple tubes of Liquid Nails and I couldn't help but notice how dry all of the hillsides are.

Well, last night at poker, some of the local
