The rains…

We are in the rainy season now in Africa.  As I am writing this, it is raining.  The semi-daily rains here are unlike rains I have experienced before.  It’s the kind of dark, rainy afternoon where you want to go home and lie under the covers…until you are jolted from your bed by the loudest thunder and lightning you have ever heard!  That just happened…I couldn’t even hear the girl sitting next to me talking it was so loud.  It’s the kind of thunder that feels like your heart has stopped and you can’t catch your breath, followed by a lightning show that would mimic any fireworks performance.  And this is almost every day.  I really do love it. 🙂  I’ve said in another post, not worry when it rains.  Here in an hour or so, the African sun will come back out and we will continue to have a beautiful day!  As for now, the thunder is still rolling…. 🙂
