The rainy season which started out so brilliantly last month with two soaking rains came to an abrupt halt soon after. At first rain the local people here hurry to their small farm plots, plant their seed and pray for more rain. This is not an exact science sometime it works and sometimes it doesn't. If the rain does not come soon the one-meter-high corn and other vegetables will be used for food for the goats and cows. And the farmers will thank God for that and wait for next year.
