The storm warning, however, is scary.
The light changes.
The sky darkens.
And the sun is taken over.
But then...nothing or, perhaps, a drizzle.
Very rarely thunder is part of the storm warning. Not a pleasant sound here - sounds like an explosion when woken from a sound sleep.
And sometimes there is a rainbow.My housemate said this was the first rainbow (hard to see, I know) she'd seen in her 15 months here.
Rarely the holes outside our guesthouse get enough water to form a puddle!
It is slightly raining in this shot. The umbrella on the ground is actually being held over a man's head who is standing in the ditch - presumably digging, when not holding the umbrella.
My shadow over the cracked dry earth. It will turn to a powder as the season ages and the 'drought' continues.
