Yes!!!!!!! I never thought I would be so happy to say it rained today in BarbadosTheeth smiley. For the first time in months I was able to use my windscreen wipers for water other than dew Theeth smileyTheeth smileyTheeth smileyTheeth smileyTheeth smileyTheeth smiley. Even though it was not a significant downpour it was enough revive the spirits of Barbados and life the heads of many drooping plants.

Barbados has been experiencing a drought for some time now and it has been a while since rain it really rained.

The drought has significantly affected the water supply in several parishes but fortunately for me I have not yet had to the pleasure for the year of fetching water from the “stand pipe” or water truck which is affectionately known to Barbadian as “The Zeppelin”.

Oh the memories, it was literally just a couple years back that my arms were literally stretched from bringing so many buckets of water. I can even remember enjoying a good country bath at the local neighborhood “Stand Pipe”.

Armed with nothing but a towel and a bar I enjoyed my short stints there as prying eyes always reinforced the fact that you were not in the comfort of your own home. These are all priceless memory that I wouldn’t trade for anything!
