It is raining


Raindrops in the dust are about a half-inch apart. This is the first rain this season.

It rained for a good solid ten minutes. I have rarely felt such excitement.

You're welcome to some of mine. We're at the height of the rainy season and it's been bucketing down for at least several hours every day, sometimes even all day. It's getting ready to pour again right now.

I'll be ready for the dry season when it kicks in in mid December.

It's so dusty where I live, that when it starts to rain, the drops kick up a little dust, and you get this weird 'low-hanging fog' effect till it all gets knocked down.
