Ten Day Blogging Challenge: Day 3

How does the weather affect you?

Strangely, not that much. Much fanfare was made about my fair skin and penchant for cold before we came here, but it turns out that the Caribbean feels very much like Manitoba on its hottest days. And you just get used to the fact that every day you'll need to change your clothes at least once, because you're soaked in sweat.

The surprising thing, and the part that I've gotten used to, is the flash showers. No matter what the weather, I always carry an umbrella, because a sudden storm can come with little warning, dumping rain for no more than two minutes. Being caught without shelter during one of those storms has the same effect as swimming with your clothes on. The flip side is that if you are under shelter, if you wait five minutes, the weather usually clears.
