Changing seasons

November – April is the wet season here in American Samoa. It rained every day last week, but I like it. It reminds me of England, and it really cools things down. Having a break from 90 degree weather is awesome. It was between 75 and 80 all last week. Perfect! The kids’ heat rashes have gone, and we have enjoyed good winds with a nice breeze in the house.

Hurricane season here is from December – March. The last day or two, things have picked up a little. LOTS of rain, and LOTS of wind. On the way to school this morning, I had to move a huge palm branch out of the road, and then there were two on my lane coming home again. Recess at school was cancelled because of the danger of falling coconuts and branches. The wind blowing into my house has been so strong that it has knocked the curtains off the wall.

I LOVE IT! It is so cool, and not being hot means we are all a lot happier. It’s also fun when there’s a break in the rain and we can enjoy being outside for a few minutes without melting away. Speaking of melting, Michael brought me some Ferrero Rocher chocolates back from the States. Yum. Better get to those fast….



  1. Yay for cooler weather!!
