We asked many Kenyans, when does the rainy season start? "When it starts to rain," was the best answer we got.
We can now verify the rainy season has begun. We get afternoon and evening showers daily..of what seems like many inches each day. It is a blessing in Kenya as now Water Tanks for drinking are full and crops like Corn and Tea are growing quickly. There is plenty of water going over the dam to provide hydroelectric power for our house and hospital.
We experience some of the other aspects of rain. Our family got stuck three times in a vehicle on the way back from Lunch at Faith's house, our shoes track mud into the hospital and house, and our basement flooded briefly.
I'm kind of hesitant to show Amelia here with an umbrella. I'd like to think we are Northwesterns at heart; No umbrellas, just jackets with hoods.
