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.
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 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!
