I love the rain. It is hot as hell here in the summer but if that is what it takes to get those down pours, I will take it. I love the mid day showers that just cool the place off. I love the grayness that settles in for days when it fluctuates between pouring and sprinkling constantly, when you think about leaving the house ten times a day but think better of it every time. I love when you can see the rain clouds coming and then it hits you and you are soaked to the bone. I love when it rains ‘cats and dogs.’ I love when the lights go out and the tree branches scrape against the windows and you think it might be a hurricane but surely your could not have missed the news that many days in a row. I love when the sun is going down and you can see a little dark cloud in the distance and know it’s going to miss you.
Just thought I would share that.

    Agreed. I’m much more likely to run out in a thunderstorm than the 98 degree heat and brutal humidity. I especially like getting ‘trapped’ in cafe’s in the afternoon and actually being able to sip *hot* coffee instead of iced.

    That is a very poetic and appropriate for today!
