It's 25+ years later and I still love the rain. I love laying in my bed (in the attic) listening to it crash down on my roof. Lately though, I haven't been able to enjoy it, AT ALL! For, you see, my roof has been leaking. So everytime it rained I'd get a feeling of dread. What was once a calming and leisurely experience was causing me stress and doom and gloom. Each rain storm would create more and more damage to my dry wall and plaster. In crazy storms, such as this one, it would drip down my inner wall and leak through the ceilings in my kitchen and living room! ZOINKS!!

But, ladies and germs, my roof is now repaired so it can rain and rain and rain all it wants, and I can love and love and love it with my whole heart again. And there isn't much better (weather-wise) than a summer rain. The other day I stood outside in the pouring rain and did this:
I just stood there with my face up to the sky and my arms out at my side and I took it in. It was a great rain. The temperature in the air was warm and perfect and the rain was cool and refreshing. Now the weather is changing and it's cooling off, the time to stand in the rain is coming to an end for another season. Next up? Jumping in puddles. What do you like to do in the rain?
