Despite starting out heavily overcast, this morning developments make me think this will be a better day. I got word late last night (actually early this morning) that there won't be any service or warranty issues with the equipment. Then, the local vendor arrived at the office at shortly past 9 with some additional items, then returned about an hour later with my power cords! Hurray! I can start!
Today is also the first time I have had to use lights in the office, other than at night. It is so overcast here and a slight scent of rain in the air, but nothing so far. The farmers here need it so badly. Our project manager here in Kampala has a coffee farm and he said his crop is not doing well and is requiring a lot of irrigation.
