What do you do when it's been raining all morning? You take yourself outside, watch your dog "bite" the raindrops from your chair on the patio, and take in the scents and sounds, all while sipping on chai tea, of course.
Just kidding. You don't HAVE to do all of the above...but it sure is nice.
When you come from a place where rain is rare, it's hard not to relish in it. I'm hoping it will rain into the night and maybe even thunderstorm a little. Isn't that the best way to sleep? My five-year-old self would severely disagree. After all, every time a big storm would come our way, I would gallop around the house in utter fear, squeezing my cheeks and telling my parents I hoped we wouldn't all die. Shortly afterwards, I would run to the innermost closet on the first floor of our home and lock myself in there for at least ten minutes until I was sure that the worst had passed.
Now, I open the windows when it's raining and say "ooohh, ahhh" when I see lighting and hear thunder. Don't worry, I close the windows when it's a total storm. I'm not THAT crazy / brave.
Hearing all this rumbling and pitter patter makes me think of this song by Enya. Don't call me corny.
How is it where you are?
