Rain is so important here in Botswana that the Setswana name for both "rain" and "money" is PULA (poo-lah). This has been one of the best rainy seasons we have seen in our 7 1/2 years of being here and it is much welcomed as we have had a major drought for the last 3 years. The Gaborone Dam that feeds water to our city has failed the last 2 years, but I am happy to report that it is now 100% full (the dam has not been full since 2001). We thank God for the rain!
