76. Normally, it's very rare. But TS Delta hit us sideways in 2005.

At the moment, we have rain bubbling up the African coast from the tropics:



Overnight steady rain over the oriental islands, the first rain this year. There was little rainfall last winter so we are in an eighteen-month long drought here.



Fuerteventura, Sept 24 2012

Rain falls on arid island
Palm trees drink, birds preen
Shoots sprout, wet petals
Mischieviously fecund.
