The night before last night was the first time we have gotten rain for 4.5 months.
The mountains have lots on new snow. When it rains, all the smog is knocked out of the air. Now, at 3pm, you can see the presence of a smog cloud in the air.
The roads are very slick, the result of 4.5 months of grime and grease build-up finally getting mixed with water.
There is an old Chilean saying-- "En Abril, lluvias mil" (a thousand rains in April).
This year, it looks like the dry season decided to extend itself an extra month.
