On Foul Weather

The street outside is more river now then road. The sky is torn and falling. I received the following text message from Rabat:

"Expéditeur: Peace Coprs
It is officially announced
that Morocco is expecting
very bad weather. PLZ keep
high vigilance and contact us
4 any information and
assistance. Stay warm and
safe. PC/SSC"

The truth of the matter is that there is nothing to do at the moment but hunker down and say ‘thanks be to god’. With no irrigation, the survival of the crops depends on a strong rainy season. And when the heat of the summer comes, there will no doubt be a longing for the rains of winter. However, at the moment its disappointing knowing that the dirt roads have all been transformed into muddy rivers and if you want to go somewhere, you can’t. But on the plus side the strongest gusts of wind have died down, the electricity is back on and the rain has managed to find its way in in only two places.
