However, most thought it was too early and waited. Then we had a little shower about once a week and some more farmers dared to plough and sowed their crops. And then not a drop for three weeks! The situation was getting desperate and “lack of rain” became the main topic of conversation. Eyes raised to the sky at the least gathering of clouds in the east community-news1/south-east (the direction most rain-forming clouds gather). All wished and prayed for rain.
