It rained for the first several hours of daylight today and it didn’t let up until all the dirt roads were moistened into brownie batter. Nobody seems to mind. Of course, most people are driving vehicles with over two feet of ground clearance, but it’s like people get used to the dampness here like people get used to sitting in dim rooms and two-week vacations. Somewhere along the line you learn to not expect much, let alone dry socks.
