Rains

Oh the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, And since we've no place to go, Let It Rain! Let It Rain! Let It Rain!
It doesn't show signs of stopping, And I've bought some corn for popping, The lights are turned way down low, Let It Rain! Let It Rain! Let It Rain!

What I love about Buea Cameroon during the rainy season:
  • little to no smell of anything burning - at all - any time of day/night or day of the week!
  • a lot less dust
  • taking off cold wet clothes and getting warm and dry
  • long drives in an air conditioned (i.e. dehumidified) Nissan Terrano
  • a meal at Chella's watching the Gorilla's watch me (I am dry and they are not)
  • watching Milo try to dodge the rain (she really thinks she can)
  • watching Jordan release pent up energy even when it is still raining (she is loosing her rain snobbishness though she doesn't romp in it like she did with snow)
  • the sound of rain (even though we have to turn on the English subtitles of our movies in order to know what is going on)
  • that in a matter of weeks the gradual process of less rain will begin.
