August (the dry season)

27 Aug

So far this month we have had just a little over two inches of rain and we are quickly coming to the end.  Normal is around 13 inches of rain.  I am not sure what is going on but I remember last year was a lot wetter.


I know that everyone on the other side is complaining about how much rain they have been getting.  I am complaining about all of my plants in the garden are starting to wither away.  With September approaching (the driest month of the year) I know a lot of people will be running out of water in their wells and will have very little back up in their tanks since it has not rained for some time now.  I hear thunder off in the distance as I write this (hoping that this writing will bring the rain) and have heard a lot of thunder this month, but not even a drop.  I am planning a trip to Biological Reserve Hitoy-Crerere tomorrow which requires crossing rivers, so if it holds off for one more day I am ok with that.
