A beautiful day today at the Costa Linda and a great forecast

Average rainfall 2.60 inches (20.3 inches annual)
Keep in mind these are averages, Aruba has been rainier due to La Nina , but the past couple of weeks were an anomaly.
Increased rainfall is attributed to La Niņa
According to the Meteorological service of the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba
" The moderate El Niņo phase which dominated the weather over our islands during especially the second half of 2009 and the first quarter of 2010 is now history. It was the main reason of the below average rainfall observed during the 2009 rainy season (-74%) in the ABC [Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao] Islands. In fact, with so little rain, the rainy season in these islands was uneventful. Even the SSS [St. Maarten, St. Eustatius, Saba] Islands, which should have received average rainfall during the second half of 2009, received less than that.
Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) in the tropical Pacific Ocean have decreased in the meantime (August 2010) to below average values and that has already lead to above average values of rainfall in the ABC Islands. In the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, the sea surface temperatures are already at above average levels [La Niņa]and the outlook is for these higher than normal temperatures to persist throughout the remainder of 2010. This is forecast to result in a good chance of significant rainfall for both the ABC and the SSS islands during the second half of 2010, including the upcoming rainy season (October-December).
Last updated: August 20, 2010."
the best thing is 17 mph gusting to 29 mph

Oh Yes! Today is a beautiful Aruba day! The winds are definitely back and the sun is shining brightly! Unfortunately we leave tomorrow afternoon so were only able to enjoy a couple of "normal" days. Our first week here was rainy, very hot and humid, with no wind. But it's nice to see things are now back to normal!
Another day dawns a new
