Is that the sun? More rain. I even end up stuck in my car for 20 minutes, waiting for a torrential downpour to ease up enough to allow me to dash from the car to the building. But after what seems like a Noah’s Ark epic rain storm, I find myself driving into the brilliant dazzle of sunshine. For about half a kilometer, the highway is bathed in golden rays that seem like a spotlight. Behind me, dark clouds. Ahead, dark clouds. In a matter of seconds, I’m through the sunshine and back into dark, dank, overcast gloom. A minute later, it is pissing down again.
But the sun peeps out again as I take Terri out. Everything is so intensely green (and glistening in the sunshine) that it hurts my eyes. The wadi is a flowing river, and we both stop to stare at it, fixated on that most ephemeral of all natural phenomena here: water and sunshine together. The gorgeous weather lasts for all of an hour; another storm front is moving in.
