Who Brought the Rain?

Click on first photo and then arrows to see enlarged photos with captions.

The men were here for the past two days sanding, chipping and scraping all the weather coating off the huge dome that forms the roof for my bedroom which essentially means there is just one layer of bricks  with a thin layer of cement between me and the weather.  So, of course, what happened tonight?  The rainy season descended a month ahead of schedule!  Pounding rain, thunder and lightning.  So far I don’t see any drips in the bedroom, but the living room is another matter. Water is dripping down from the cracked skylight. Thus, a major rearranging of furniture and placement of beach towels and bowls to catch the water.  The rest of the roof is scheduled for the same treatment. Must check the weather.. Oh oh.. electricity just went off!!!!

Annie is bored with it all and is yowling for me to come to bed.

Who brought the rain?  Of course, I did!!!!

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    They say these ceilings are the strongest place in the house during an earthquake. The way they are built, the bricks hold each other up. And they are so beautiful.. Amazing to see them build them Calen, starting in the four corners and meeting perfectly in the middle. One of the wonderful things about living in Mexico are the wonderful and affordable artisans.

    Oh Judy I’m so sorry you have to deal with this! It makes me sad to see pans in your beautiful living room. At least Annie still has her priorities straight!

      Ha. I have leather furniture and all tile floors so as long as it doesn’t run down the walls I am okay. Rain has stopped and the only leaks were from the domed skylight in the center of the room..I moved the books just in time so all that got wet was the arm of the sofa, a glass table and the floor.
