I guess it used to be that once the dry season began, you wouldn't have a drop of rain for months. That isn't the case any more, probably because of Climate Change, not that I am in a position to say.
But, as different as the clouds and sky are here, the rain is also really something else. It seems to rain all at once, rather than in drops. More like, sheets, or ropes, or daggers. It hits your skin hard, with a violence. It makes a huge sound when it impacts on all the metal roofs.
