Suddenly it's late March!
Our weeks have been flying by. The weather has heated up and humidity has increased since the dry, dusty harmattan season seems to be done. That doesn't make it easier to work, that's for sure. The occasional rain breaks the heat and humidity for a bit of relief - but then it comes right back!
|Everything is turning green again now that the rains have|
returned. I was told we were 84 days without rain.
Just yesterday we were given an awesome storm. The sky darkened, the clouds rolled as the winds picked up, giving some very impressive skies! Then the raindrops started to fall, slowly at first. But you just could feel that so many more were coming! We could watch the wall of rain closing in on us, allowing us to judge it's arrival and beat a very hasty and barely dry retreat to the shelter of home.
|Standing outside watching the show the clouds were|
"He loads the thick cloud with moisture: the clouds scatter his lightning.
They turn around and around by his guidance, to accomplish all that he
commands them on the face of the habitable world."
