Finally the rain brings some respite

We were longing for the rains since last month...the heat was unbearable and top of it the sticky humidity made it worse summer days. My city is a concrete jungle without much trees around, that anyway helps soaring temperatures during the summers...but this time around too much of humidity killed the summer fun. And then today with some PETRICHOR (I like this term) arrived the first splash of downpour in my city. I did get out on the streets to be drenched. The first rains really bring some respite to suffocating souls

I love rains. But we are advices not to go in the fall for first rains as it can be harmful for skin and health. We enjoy it when it reoccur

Definition of petrichor - a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather

Today it is raining for the first time in nearly two weeks. The vegetation begins to turn brown in the extreme sun when the rains hold back. Thankfully all will be lush green again soon.
