'Wet season' rain water is collected in Kimberley during November - April when it rains the most in that part of Australia if I am correct.

"Stockholm autumn rain water" doesn`t sound exotic..

During the wet season, the air is cleaner than it during the dry season. Right after the sugar cane harvest it's not uncommon for their to be a lot of debris in cisterns where water is collected. I don't think I've ever seen anyone talk about wet season rain water before but you gotta have a good story.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Could the wet season referred to be because Kimberly is located down under in Australia?


I'll do some research to confirm the trends there.

Down here in this neck of the Caribbean rainfall is pretty well spread across the year. The most wet historically is August through November due to tropical storms and hurricanes. Typically the driest months are December through May.

Right now we have a pretty active tropical wave passing over us, and it's leaving a deposit of Saharan Desert dust, and some thunderstorms. Just the beginning to hurricane season here, which begins June 1.

Just as we fly out to the Caribbean.....typical.

Patchy thunderstorms all week in Jamaica - pah. Guess there's nothing to distract us from all the rum.

Please the gods by sacrificing some of the divine and ingenious concoctions you will conjure in Jamaica.

I will sacrifice said concoctions to the gullet gods immediately. That should do it

Donґt forget the 7 hour anti-rain dance after due sacrifice is done.
