Rain cloud over Maio

Much needed rain comes to Cape Verde

Much needed rain has been falling in Cape Verde. We have reports of heavy rain in Maio. This is the first in the rainy season and will be welcomed by farmers and gardeners alike. The children enjoy playing in the puddles as can be seen in this video:

Some years there can be as little as one day of rain in the year, so to have some heavy rain now is good. Whilst many of us don’t want rain, especially if we live in the northern parts of Europe, for Cape Verdeans it is a welcome event. The rainy season is very short-lived.
