The Rain She Come

YAY! Our water well and our dusty sandy streets thank you rain clouds. Caye Caulker has no municipal water and sewer system. We rely on wells and cisterns for our fresh water, and soak aways and septic for waste water. We are one of the few villages left in Belize with no municipal water system and frankly, we are running out of water. After such a dry, dry season and low low tides we are grateful and happy to see the rain, even if it comes down in bucketfulls.

Congratulations on your rain. We have been getting a little rain just about every day after a long, long dry spell. It's wonderful, isn't it?
