Driving down through the Mbabe Depression, a vast near-treeless plain in N. Botswana, a storm built up and moved westward rapidly to engulf me and a few nervous animals, including this lone wildebeast.  Sand and dust led the way, reducing visibility to nil, and rain followed, complete with thunder and spectacular lightning. After these and a few other shots, I got out of there, since the “road” I was driving on becomes impassable quickly when it gets wet.  It was slightly intimidating.  But this was tempered by a feeling of relief.  I am surprised how much the first rains of the season can affect even me, a visitor.  The weather has been so hot, so dry, that these first storms, however brief they are, are as welcome as any rain I’ve experienced.
