It's a different type of rain I guess you could say. And typically only up in the mountains. Out on the coastal edges, it's usually amazing.

Beautiful pic.

I have a lot of places to travel before I settle down and pick a final destination. I'm sure Hawaii is nice, but it is so damn expensive, I'm not @Private Banker rich! I would have to keep working a lot longer to afford Hawaii.

Thanks Ben. I see @rtrade and @bluemele are from Hawaii too.

Rains everyday? Yuck.

Mike

@Big Mike

Don't like rain... consider the Dutch Antilles

Aruba Weather & Climate

With an average rainfall of less than 20 inches a year, an average daytime temperature of 82° Fahrenheit (27° Celsius), a location completely outside the hurricane belt, and the constant cooling influence of the trade winds, Aruba is one of the most temperate islands in the Caribbean.

The difference between median day and night temperatures, and between summer and winter temperatures, is just 3.6°. The rainfall occurs mainly in short showers during November and December.


Curacao Weather & Climate

Located in the tropics, just 12° north of the Equator -- and outside of the hurricane belt -- Curaçao has a warm, sunny climate year round. The average temperature is about 27° C ( mid 80s F). Refreshing trade winds blow constantly from the east, picking up in the spring months. The rainy season, October to February, is marked by short, occasional showers, usually at night, and continued sunny weather by day. Total annual rainfall averages only 570 mm (22 inches).

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

why not Consider Manhattan, NYC

it's its own state (of mind)

we have many Caribbean natives and disapora, in case you get lonely for the accent

we have a heat wave that makes being in the Caribbean, just another long flight

we have ultra high speed internet, so your co-located trading can wisp through...

we have beaches and some of the best sights on those beaches

we have the best night life north of Miami (properly pronounced Mi-Jammi, by all those Hispanic Caribbean natives)

we have some of the best and longest non-stop filghts clear across the globe from both JFK and EWR, to places as far flung as:
HNL
SIN, JNB, GIG, HKG
and so many other destinations

hey,

the weather's great, we're peaking over 92 and many places reaching 100

you've got the beaches from the Hamptons to Brighton to Point Pleasant to The Shore (NJ)

any way you slice it, its Mazeltov!
