Going to sleep and waking up to the sound of rain is so wonderful! Yes folks, it's raining in Northern California and we are all so grateful. There is supposed to be a break in it tomorrow and then more storms coming through and more rain for several days. What is your attitude about rain? Is your are getting enough or too much?

I have this favorite smell from childhood, the rain hitting the warm pavement in big drops. I still love that smell and it brings back a memory of staying in a motel with my Nana. I was playing on the swingset they had outside and Nana had to call me in when it began to rain. I can still smell the rain on the pavement. It's funny how memories come back like that.

@CinnamonGrl Yes here there is an ally where people piss a lot. It smells awful but the rain would wash it and I could always think of how nice that was. That ally is the short cut to the shopping center.

Glad to hear that you are getting some much needed rain. We had lots of rain but we are expecting more on Friday. I don't mind rain. When I was a kid I use to like to play in the rain but now I just stay inside where it is dry.

I love rain unless I'm caught in it when I'm out on my bike.

Yeh, that's the thing, I don't have to go out in it to work anymore. I can enjoy it while I'm nice and cozy.

I love to hear the rain hitting the roof when I'm trying to sleep. It puts me to sleep like a baby being rocked. It rained here yesterday too but it rains here in Canada much more than you see so I'm glad you got some, and hope you get more.

We usually get all the rain we need in my state of IL. I can only remember a few times when rain was needed here.

Rain is wonderful after a hot, sticky spell. At the moment though I'm hoping the rain holds off for my evening run.

If you live in Oregon, you had better not mind the rain. We too have had far too little in the past two or three years and are glad to see this wet year. I am hoping for no more ice or snow here in western Oregon though.

As of today it's quite raining here. I feel lazy when it's raining but I love the cool temperature.

We haven't gotten very much the past couple of months, which is actually somewhat good for me personally, as I have a roof leak and the work hasn't been scheduled, yet. But in general, I think we do need more precipitation, definitely. As soon as my roof gets fixed, it can pour down!
