Rains pour little relief

The nearly month-long island-wide water shortage has been helped in the past week by some pretty wild weather.  Heavy rains and flash flood warnings were expected this weekend, but don’t seem to have shown up as forecast. During the month, 2 inches of rain has fallen, slightly more than usual for April.  A weather predictor in Puerto Rico, quoted by the Virgin Islands Daily News, warned Friday that 2 inches more could fall this weekend, but statistics from Weather Underground indicated late Sunday no such deluge.  Islanders were mighty disappointed when the hoped-for rain (sorry tourists!) didn’t arrive – leaving cisterns still emmmm-teee!
