Dry season is in full swing now. It may be obvious from the name but we haven’t had any rainfall since October and won’t see rain until May or June. Though it is brown, dry and dusty outside, we experience some of our coolest temperatures at this time of year because of Harmattan. The days get pretty hot, low 90s, but through the night our house cools down to the low 70s. It makes perfect sweatshirt and hot cocoa weather and helps us to feel like it’s the correct season for Christmas. In the picture you can see what looks like fog. In fact, that is dust in the air. It makes keeping the house clean a near impossibility and causes us to have dry throats and coughs. Our humidity levels are often no higher than single digits and we often feel as if we are going to evaporate into the air because our skin is so dry. The dust is an inconvenience but I love the feeling of putting on a sweatshirt and drinking hot beverages while living in West Africa!
So, tell me about your Christmas weather.
