April Showers

There is a saying in Portugal that goes: e próprio do mês de abril, as águas serem às mil. It translates very roughly as follows: it is right that in the month of April the rainfall comes in thousands (it rhymes in Portugese). That certainly seems to be the case this year and the rain (which also fell in March) continues to fall.
