“A wintery day”

Is this Africa?

torrents of water by the road

Hail storm

This is the “winter” season, meaning it is the coldest time of the year but in all my years in Kenya I had never seen what appeared to be snow in the air or on the ground.  Yes, it hails but usually it melts when it hits the pavement but as I was driving west about 30km from Eldoret I entered an area where I was thinking that maybe I should turn back.  I have never been keen on winter driving but winter driving on the already dangerous roads of Kenya?     Torrents of muddy water rushed past at the side of the road creating a hazard for both drivers and pedestrians.  I was thankful that we drove out of the wintery weather  about five miniutes later.  It wasn’t snow though but rather a lot of hail.
