Rain Chain

This afternoon we had a very big thunderstorm. I mean the thunder was SO loud it seemed like it was cracking right on our roof and it went on for at least an hour! Thunderstorms are usually a comforting sound, with the rain falling, etc. However, this one sent me jumping with the loud cracks every 30 seconds or so! Jack didn’t seem overly impressed either, as I found him cowering in the car port and brought him inside so that we could cower together, lol.

One of the amusing things used here in Panama, in place of eavestroughing extensions that go down to the ground, is a chain. The chain hangs from the actual eavestrough and extends down the ground. The idea is that the water will follow the chain down, but from what I see, it just falls right beside the chain, still creating a big puddle of water below. Well, at least all the plants were watered today via nature rather than the hose – saved me about an hour of watering :-)!
