It hasn't been raining nor has our water been turned on. However, after four days without water, a large truck came and filled our reserve tank, which should last for a couple weeks. Although we're still rationing, we have water to shower, clean dishes, and wash clothes. So I've spent the last two days washing clothes, and I am happy to do laundry! There weren't even enough clothes lines in and outside the house to hang all my laundry. It's a good problem.
We are currently experiencing the "short rains", which are supposed to last about five weeks. The temperature has dropped (I wore a long sleeved sweater to work this week!), but the rain has only come twice. If it doesn't rain a good amount this season, then we're in for a tough "winter" of rationing water until March when the long rains come. Thank you for your prayers. Rain seems like a silly thing to pray for, especially for my Oregonian friends, but it's a big deal here. No rain means a lot of trouble for most of Kenya (and no laundry for me). Please continue to keep us in your thoughts.
