In 2010 especially, the Oct/Nov/Dec months were particularly wet. The Meteorological Office of Aruba keeps updated info which is available online and you can see that 2010 was kind of outside the norm.

Departamento Meteorologico Aruba - Climate Data

You can see the 2010 data here: http://www.meteo.aw/files/Download/2010.pdf - in the row "Monthly rainfall"

We'll see how this year goes, but yes, this past weekend saw some heavy rain. It was actually expected to be worse, because of the tropical system that was in our area, but we were largely spared any really sustained rainfall.

Recently I read an article about global warming and its impact and how a recent study (that was actually commissioned by skeptics) reaffirmed the findings of previous studies. Bottom line, temperature has risen by almost a degree globally. But that's a whole other story!
