How is winter going...?

A white immigrant built a hut in the vast forests of Canada, getting ready for winter ...

An Indian watches him for a long time as he cuts the wood;
He says, “This winter will be cold ...” and quickly goes away ... 

***

The immigrant, who has great confidence in the natural knowledge of the Indians, started to cut more and more wood day and night with great concern.
In the evening, as the same Indian passes by the hut again;
“Winter will be very, very cold ...” he says ... 

***

The immigrant is now terribly scared and continues to cut and stack wood madly...
The next morning, he saw the Indian and asked with fear;
“How do you know that winter will be very cold?”
The Indian responds with the same fear and anxiety;
“There is an old Indian saying, if the white man cuts a lot of wood, the winter will be very tough ...”

As far as we can see, we will not experience the winter this year in Konya. Drought is unfortunately at an extreme level. Recently, the snow has given hopes a little bit, but that’s all.

There are interesting and creepy news in our newspaper about the concern of drought and the withdrawal of groundwater in the Konya plain. While our underground waters are rapidly withdrawing, Konya is experiencing such a dry season for the first time after many years ... We will see the negative effects of drought on economy and sociology in the coming months more clearly.

The unbearable drought is now adding to the effects of the big economic crisis. . After a spring-like winter, we seem to have a really difficult and weary spring and summer.
In this sense, may Allah help everyone.
