The rains in Oklahoma fall hard, often coming down sideways or in the form of mud due to chronic strong winds. One particular rain I remember occurred when I was a member of Third Corp, stationed at Ft. Sill, north of Lawton. One of the Sergeants Major from our unit was retiring, and we were preparing his retirement party at the NCO club on post. We had finished setting up and realized that we had forgotten the flag that was to be given to him from our unit as a gift. I and a fellow soldier rushed back to the unit across post to retrieve it when it began to rain. At first, the rain was just those big, pregnant drops that sometimes fall from a clear summer sky, but it quickly transformed into a raging monsoon. Driving in the military jeep, neither of us could see twenty feet in front of us. Not being the driver, I was forced to exit the jeep and walk immediately in front, waiving a flashlight and tapping the hood to signal the driver to advance. The water rose so fast in the road, that within minutes it was washing over the tops of my boots, leaving me drenched. What was normally a five minute ride took nearly thirty to complete.

It was the month of may. the school had reopened after the annual results.
I was promoted to the higher class and was very excited about it. My bag was full of new books. My uniform was brand new. I was walking briskly towards the school. Suddenly, there were dark clouds in the sky. They soon spread and covered the sun. I started running towards the school and when I was barely a 100 meters away from the school it started pouring hard .I ran towards a tree and stood under it for some time but the rain did not stop. Soon, water drops started drenching me to the marrow. I tried to save my bag to no avail. My shoes and socks were so full of water that I started feeling a numbness in my feet. At last,I took up the risk and started running towards the school. My shoes threw mud all over my back. When I reached school building I took shelter in the porch. I immediately opened my bag and tried to rescue my books and notebooks.The cardboard wrapper of pastel chalks that were meant for the drawing period had got torn.The chalks had become pulp and their color was splashed on my books and notebooks.
I removed my shoes and shocks and left them to dry. I looked awkward. Since then, I never forget to take my umbrella along the raining season.
