“It rained. Not the kind of rain that comes in a shower then passes. This rain came from a sky dark as a bruise, falling hard and fast, beating the earth, washing down the tracks, making straps of pathways and rivers of roads.” Noah builds an ark to save the animals from the forthcoming flood, but he thinks the rain “will be an ideal time to tidy up the world and get rid of some of those more troublesome creatures.” Mrs Noah says nothing but creates a coat with many deep pockets.
