Rain

(Posted by Laurence)

This was my view out of the kitchen window this morning, in the aftermath of a rainstorm. We are just starting to get into rainy season, and the rain often seems to come at night — I’m sure my father-in-law can explain why… cooler temperatures causing precipitation perhaps?

For us, the past few months of dry season have merely meant uncomfortable hot stuffy nights, but for many in the north-eastern regions of Uganda it has meant drought — food shortages and dry boreholes.

  1. Well I don’t know Laurence – rain at night!? Usually in the tropics it’s rain caused by the heat of the day so late afternoon. But you’re close to a huge lake – more like a mini sea – so maybe there’s a local microclimate at work associated with Lake Victoria?
