When It Rains, It (almost) Snows

Sweeping

A couple of Saturdays ago we had the fiercest wind and rain storm that we’ve had since I’ve been here. About 5pm the wind suddenly picked up, the rain came pouring down and was blown against the building, coming through cracks in windows, blowing out some windows and causing a tree to fall on someone’s Land Cruiser. After we all secured things in our apartments, we were out with brooms and dust pans, trying to get rid of the very slippery hail that came down. It really looked like snow on the ground and I asked if anyone had a snow shovel–they thought I was crazy. We had fun working together and cleaning up.
