May showers brought out the umbrellas and joy today! Luckily we closed the skylight and covered the outdoor cushions as we heard rain may be in the forecast this week. I never would have expected it to have rained as hard as it did today. The streets were flooding everywhere and the rain only lasted a couple hours maybe, throughout the day. I think at one time it was actually hailing!!
I love being surprised by the weather and then talking about it and seeing all the Facebook updates because rain is not normal in California, especially right now with the drought. Everyone gets excited by it. Rain is a big deal and we need it so desperately.
I am thankful that we lived in Holland, where I became used to the wet weather and raindrops don’t worry me anymore. I don’t mind getting a little bit wet and I actually enjoy the smell of the rain on the asphalt, the sounds of the drops hitting surfaces and the sight of rain falling and splashing and creating natural, water art formations. The rain brings back great memories.
Today I had fun playing in the rain and the after glow. Here I am…with Juliana, playing and living it up! Goodbye rain, Hello sunshine!
Do you like the rain? What do you like to do when it’s raining?
