Rain

I just have to say this:  I LOVE RAIN!  I love rain and thunderstorms and lighting.  The way the air smells like fresh and dirt and refreshing.  The way the sky lights up and the universe booms.  The pitter patter sound of the drops hitting the sidewalk, my roof, my skylight.   It's a fresh start, a new beginning.  The earth gets nourished and plants thrive.  I miss my house on Arch street in Marquette with the big porch and porch swing ... I would sit on the front porch and listen and watch all night long.

OK, I may be silly.  Most people love it when the sun is out.  Don't get me wrong.  I like a pretty day.  But nothing makes me smile like a booming thunderstorm.
