I’m Dreaming of a Wet Christmas!

More of a nightmare really!

It seems that the end of the rains just a fortnight ago was a false dawn. After the heat and humidity of Zanzibar, our return to Mwanza has been a wet one. Soaked on our shopping trip yesterday today has seen probably our strongest and most persistent midday rains yet. Given tat the sun is at it’s zenith and that we are just 2°S of the equator we might expect more brightness at 2pm, yet we sit here in a Power Cut in darkness with a gas lamp for illumination. It’s dim and cold here (possibly relative cool but still cool). The rain shows no sign of stopping but we haven’t got “corn a popping” either (forgive the allusion to “Let It Snow” it is Christmas after all!)
Tomorrow’s planned Christmas Dinner is to be located in our garden but in 24 hours we might have to locate indoors if it’s anything like this.
Soon I may have to brave the rain – there are still things to do and although the shops will be open longer here – time is running out!

  1. Praying for settled weather and thT all the arrangements go ahead as planned. Take care 🙂


  2. A line from another song: ‘Dont let the rain come down may ring bells with you!


  3. Another line from the song is ‘ the weather outside is frightful’, things can only get better or build an Ark !!
