unfortunately drought on pacific islands is all too common. three years ago i was in the Philippines during one. i was amazed, cracks were forming in
the ground well over four feet deep (i only had a four foot long piece of bamboo to probe the cracks with) due to the ground completely drying out.
personally i had never seen ground that dried out before.
there IS a lot of rain at CERTAIN times of year, yet the rest of the year can have little rain or some rain, no rain etc. even when it does rain it
may only hit a portion of manila (for example) causing roads to flood, yet leaving other portions dry. i would imagine in the mountainous areas one
side will get rain while the other side remains dry.
it's kinda like everywhere else,except instead of a "snow season" it is "rain season" instead, lots and lots of rain.
but only for a couple
months of the year, the rest is hit or miss like the rest of the world. in fact over the last 8 months, we really haven't had all that much rain. but
the rainy season is on it's way, being about halfway through the summer now.
