Hooray! It is raining!
Look at the raindrops in Little Monkey’s water bowl.
Those of you living in wetter climates, with so much rain you are waterlogged or even flooded, may not appreciate the joy a good rain can bring.
Here in drought-stricken Cape Town, it is a major cause for celebration. Our dams are down to 52% storage capacity and summer has hardly begun. Our hottest month is February and rains were not expected until winter; next July.
So, though today’s unseasonal rain won’t be enough to fill up the dams, at least it provides some respite for our parched gardens and tops up LM’s water bowls.
