OK...This is my observations on this thread...Yes...lots more rain than usual, but who knows why....? know, there are too many mean and angry things being said on this forum. Tiberius, you seem really angry. I think you have some important things to say, but your anger gets in the way. Old Tart, We all know you care a lot and have many important things to say. But, you take things to personal and encourage the trolls.

Bottom line...All of us would be happier if there are fewer attacks on other posters. We should all ask ourselves if we are saying something to help others, or piss them off....

You guys are freakin' hilarious, thank you for the laughs, I think this bickering was some of the best EVER! 🙂 insert smiley/winking face here.

I moved here from Oregon 12+ years ago ... Oregon is one of the major rain capitals of America. I know rain, and I definitely got tired of all the rain in Oregon, but I also realize that's what made Oregon so green and beautiful. I would never have expected to wish, hope and love rain, but I love when it rains here ...big, fat, WARM drops of rain are something that still mesmerizes me to this day.

I've also become aware of making comments about the volume of rain we've had here during the past month or so ... It does seem to be more than I recall in the past years that I've lived here. I love the sound of the rain on our tin roof, never heard that in Oregon. At one point it was so loud a couple of weeks ago that I was feeling nervous about the volume of rain ... ME, an Oregonian, nervous about rain volume?
Yes, we've got black gunk and slime from the rain, and gungalows(spell-check not working on this word) but our bananas and other plants are thriving 🙂

I do wonder if there's some sort of climate change occurring, the weather has been so unusual in so many parts of the world.

Wow, what the heck did I miss in this thread? Sure, I've only been here for 2 years now, but I live on a farm where rain is pretty important and most of the people I'm around are either from the VI or have been here for a long time.

We were joking the other day about having a "qualifying statement box" when you walk in, so people could just write it down and we wouldn't have to hear it. lol

We had a draught in the spring and I guess it's making up for it the last month or so. Made for a great mango season.

It has been rather wet here on STX the last couple of months and the statistics that we have been compiling for 6 years indicate that , yes, it rains a lot more in Nov. and Dec. than any other month, other than May. We have had 11.125" in November and 10.5" in December so far for 2013 outside Christiansted. This is very close to the totals we received in 2008, 2009, and 2010.

So, the rain seems to be falling more but, the weather doesn't seem to be changing, at least during the last 6 years!

This discussion about the sporadic rainfall continues daily amongst my friends. Do not recall this in my years. The November where it rained 19.5 inches in 10 days was madness years ago. This time is is so sporadic. Very sunny out where you figure it will continue, and then bam! A hard rainfall. I do appreciate it as the cisterns are not empty anymore!! No idea why this is different.
