Rain

And lots of it. It's been a daily occurrence for several days, and there's plenty more in the forecast. Makes our neck of the woods look a lot like Ireland.

I actually really like it this time of the year. Everything looks greener against the stony grey backdrop, and the sound is enchanting. It is what they call "soft" weather...

  3. Nature is a beautiful shade of green when it rains. When I was young I loved to sit on the porch and watch it rain. To this day I enjoy a good storm (although I'm more wary of lightning now than 30 years ago). I could always smell the rain coming, and when I saw the leaves turn, I knew it was near. Presently living in a city, it's harder to smell the rain coming (cities are rank in their own rite), but it's very refreshing right after it rains.

    BTW, is that a capsized Tonka truck in the flood? We used to ride our metal Tonka trucks like skateboards!
