Drought to Rainy Season
It is amazing how quickly the seasons change. One day I am sitting here complaining about all of the fires and drought, and two weeks later I find myself getting a text warning about flooding due to the massive amounts of rainfall.
The past few weeks have been full of rain, making me bring my raincoat wherever I go. It has rained so much that the river in Samalaeulu returned. (The strongest river in Samoa that only appears about 3 times a year.)
Our water levels have not returned to a “safe level” yet to allow people in all villages to have piped water during more hours of the day, but if this weather pattern continues soon, we’ll get there.
