Ice at the equator

We are thirty minutes from the equator, albeit at 1700m. We are in the 'short rains' which usually means a torrential downpour in later afternoon, lasting maybe two hours and cooling things down considerably.
Our network has been down for a day, so this is a little later than I intended.
Thursday was the mother of all storms. Hail fell in buckets for about half an hour, making the compound look more like a site in Canada in early winter. The ice soon melted and as we went out for the Rotary meeting later steam swirled along the dirt road as the ground released its warmth. Cars were completely covered in leaves torn off the trees.
