The same thing happened us a few years ago, it had not rined like it there for years, by the afternoon it cleared and that was the last we saw of rain or clouds. There is a big high pressure build here from Wednesday, hope it reaches Lanzarote for you.

Well at least its warm and you know it will clear. Enjoy the sun when you see it and maybe take a photo to remind us what it looks like.

Hard luck must have thought it was a nightmare or were you missing the green green grass of home. Nice day here today so you must have taken rain with you, hope you both have a great time look forward to hearing more.

I'm very very sorry to hear that....  I'm like you.  Everywhere I go it rains.  California, Hawaii (and Lanzarote as well, if you feel better!)....  I had rains, too.  I hope you'll have a good time nonetheless!

Hope you are both having a great time and the rain has stopped. Sure you'd miss the rain if you did'nt have a drop or two. Ha Ha
