Happy Birthday to my granddaughter, Isabelle, who is in the US.
Yesterday our first rain fell as we began our second day of inventory at the school. When it started to sprinkle, Angie headed back to close up our tent (we’d left the windows uncovered) and to retrieve our raincoats and umbrellas. It rained for several hours, and we headed home in a downpour. Halfway there, the IRD car came down the road and gave us lift the rest of the way.
We mopped up the water that had run under the beds and separated wet items from dry. We flipped Angie’s foam mattress, which had soaked up some water, since she didn’t yet have a bed frame. Then we spent some hours in the tent reading, catching up on email correspondence, and planning our next moves while the rain pelted the rain cover above our tent.
