It feels so good

June 27, 2009 1:14pm CST
It has been a very hot and stuffy day here in the UK. Then all of a sudden it started to pour down and it feels so good as it cooled everything down. I was so tempted to go and stand outside in it and just enjoy the rain but thought better of it in case my three year old decided to follow me. As it is also thunder and lightening as well. So I am sitting here listening to the rain bounce off the window and enjoying the sound. I never thought the day would come when I would be happy to see it rain. Have you ever just stood out in the rain and enjoyed the feeling of it? Do you like the rain?

Hey littleone! I happen to love to see rain coming down and I also love thunder storms, as long as I am safe inside watching the thunder and lightning! It has been raining here in the US in NYS where I live for over 20 days straight now! We are kind of the rain now and would really like a break from it! We have hardly seen the sun at all! So as much as I do like the storms I would really like them to stop for awhile to allow a nice sunny summer day!

Hi Opal I hope you get your wish. It usually rains a lot here as well but it has been very hot here lately with hardly any rain.

Sometimes I do....I love the smell of rain...it's so refreshing! I opened my window a bit this morning as it was raining here too.....it made my house smell so fresh!

The rain has yet to reach this part of the UK but, if it had, I would have willingly stood out in it at the end of my shift today!There is something great about the smell of rain after a dry spell and I would love to get rid of this heavy, muggy atmosphere before I start tomorrow's shift.( I'd like it to be nice again on Wednesday because i have the day off )

I agree I love the smell as well. They did say on the weather earlier Wednesday is going to be very hot all over the UK but you never know how it will change between then and now.
