Default Stale?

The board seems a little "stale" lately. Not much interesting being written. All the lucky people that have been to Aruba this year and nothing excited to write about. Our streak of 10 years in a row was broken this year when the local school board changed winter and EASTER BREAK. My wife and I are looking forward to our return next year.

From reading previous posts, it sounds like the weather patterns have been changing. True or false? Seems like more rain than normal. What is the status of the Ritz? Really hate to see it being built!

Information...needs tons of information. What's new on the island? Any changes?

There are other Aruba bulletin boards/forums that are more active.

Link to my latest trip report with photos:
Aruba Trip Report by ~Amy~ and Mike 2011 - Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort

Just click on the small photos in the report to make them larger. One of my aerial shots from the helicopter shows the latest on the Ritz construction.

So how was the weather? In some of the pictures, the clouds seem really dark. In all the years we have gone we only had one rainy day. A little shower here and there but never an all day rain UNTIL last year when my son and his family came with us. It was the week after Easter 2010.

In posts this year, it seemed that everyone kept saying how it rained and rained.

You could sometimes see rain and dark clouds in the distance but only got a few showers at night (could tell it had rained at night because our patio was wet in the morning.) Did have one rainy morning where it rained for about 15 minutes around 9am - then it cleared up and was fine (and hot) for the rest of the day. Other than that, the weather was fine.

Amy is very informative.
In my opinion, things did change when one person ended her association with this board.
It was much more vibrant.

Thank you! I do my best to help when I can.

Not sure what that other strange post is all about....but it makes me wonder why I bother to read/post on this BB at all if that's the attitude of some of the current members....

You are a wealth of information Amy and I for one, appreciate the fact that you take the time to post on this board. Please don't let one person chase you from this board.

Amy, I didn't get the impression it was directed at you.

Thank you to both of you for responding. I didn't quite get what that other post was about and since it was right after mine I just thought...well, I don't know what I thought quite honestly except that it was odd.
