Room With A View

I love the rainy months here! It's like living in an ever-changing art display.

It always reminds me of home, too...

We have a saying in Central Texas, "If you don't like the weather, wait around a few hours - it'll change." During the rainy season here in Goiânia, the same is true.

This is what it looks like in the months just before the rains start.

Here are a few shots that I took from my apartment, this past November & December...

(That would be a wall of water headed our way...)

To give you an idea of just how big those clouds are, the tallest building in the back left of these pics is 25 stories tall. Some of the thunderheads that pass through these parts dwarf these concrete giants.

Cool, huh?

This one took out the electricity for a few hours...

This was an awesome sunset...

This year we've had more rain (sometimes, for days on end) intermixed with some surprisingly sunny spots. Some days start off with a scorcher of a sunrise...

Despite a strong showing at sunrise,

the storm clouds in the west were destined
to make a play for these rays...

...and usually make for the most interesting days of the week. I'm loving every minute of it! Maybe it's the "chillaxed" barometric pressure, but rainy days lift my spirits like nothing else.
