“Some days later, when the land had been moistened by two or three heavy rains, Okonkwo and his family went to the farm with basket of seed-yams, their hoes, and machetes, and the planting began” (33).

It is pouring here in Oregon. Can't get enough of the sound of the rain. So very grateful for God's gift to nourish the earth and His children. Thinking of those enduring the snow, with more storms coming. Praying for your safety. God Bless. CH.
