More Weather

This is probably fallout from the S.E. Asia tsunami disaster, but we've been having lots of rain the last couple of days. And what do you do when you live in the desert and it rains? You goes out in it, that's what you do.

So yesterday morning I awoke at 4 a.m., having been comprehensively bitten by mosquitos, couldn't get back to sleep, and so went for a long walk in the rain until about 6 a.m. By the way, a bit of local folklore. When you get a mozzie bite, press salt into the wound. It gives immediate relief. And this morning (it's almost 3 a.m. now), we had some thunder and lightning at 1a.m., so BetterArf and I decided to go for a trudge. It was raining pretty heavily by the time we got back, and we were soaked to the skin despite our waterproof gear.

Bliss.
