October is supposed to be the rainiest of the rainy season. Not this year at our house… I measured 17 1/2″ compared to 21 1/2″ in September.
Still it was enough to fully saturate the ground causing a landslide which blocked the Autopista del Sol, aka Route 27 – the main highway from San Jose to the Pacific beaches. Reports are that the pista will be closed because of other potential slides. That means one of the alternate routes is down our road. Luckily the word is getting out that this is not a good alternative and traffic is almost back to normal.
Now if we can only get the drivers to stop beeping at the cows in the road… equivalent of Tico road rage… all will be tranquilo!
