Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry

notice the language the author described rain and dust in the following paragraph

By the end of October the rain had come, falling heavily upon the six-inch layer of dust which had had its own way for morethan two months. At first the rain had merely splotched the dust, which seemed to be rejoicing in its own resiliency andlaughing at the heavy drops thudding against it: but eventually the dust was forced to surrender to the mastery of the rain andit churned into a fine red mud that oozed between our toes and slopped against our ankles as we marched miserably to and from the school

These questions have already been answered. You need to go back and look at the questions you posted last week.

This is the only text evidence I can find in Chapter Five that supports the "effects" of rain (drying mud puddles) and dust (red dirt).

"Lining the road were strips of red dirt splotched with patches of brown grass and drying mud puddles, and beyond the dirt and the mud puddles, gloomy store buildings set behind raised wooden sidewalks and sagging verandas."
