Oct. 1, 2007 – The rainy season is winding down but it’s not over. Around 2:30 this morning it started raining. We woke up and muttered to each other that it would be good for the garden. Kelly was soon asleep again, but I lay awake listening.
The sound of the rain got harder and harder. Before the waterspout hit San Juan Cosala almost 3 weeks ago, I always enjoyed this sound but now it does put me on edge.
It got louder. There was some thunder and lightening, a ways away, then closer, then further again, and ever so gradually the rain diminished. I fell asleep after it got down to a soft drizzle.
While I was awake, I felt myself connected with other people who were also listening to the rain in our town, some of them far more nervous than I was.
Rich or poor, right in town or in the Raquet Club, whatever age and nationality, listening together in the night.
