Morning Rain

I woke up around 6:30 to the sound of thunder. I jumped up to let the dogs out before the rain started and to get a picture of my latest baby hat. We were not back inside for 2 minutes before it started to pour. Jasmine refuses to go out in the rain and neither are fans of thunder. I like morning rain. It starts the day off with a nice fresh slate. Now, it is different when I have kids to get off to school, have to drive in it, or need to do something outdoors. But this morning, none of those things were happening, so I could sit and look out the window and watch the rain.

I like the rain--except if I have to be productive in it. There is something cleansing about a morning rain--a fresh start so to speak. And the smell....on warm concrete....nothing like it.

I love the rain too. Especially summer rain. It's so refreshing and soothing. I could just sit and watch it all day:) Glad you had the chance to enjoy it and not have to rush around. So I guess schools out down there then? We only have one week left and I"m so excited!
