The pain of remembering

The dry season has come and is in the process of going. I had forgotten what rotten headaches the atmospheric pressure gives me just before the rainshowers here.

A downpour started at 5:30am, waking me, and I rushed to put a bucket under one of the leaks. When the rain finally let up, I saw that we had collected 3-4 liters. Really going to have to call Aïcha and get her to fix it. If not, we'll hire the work out and deduct it from the rent. I'm not spending another rainy season using all my pots and pans to collect leak-runoff.
