    It was pouring, I was crying and the kids were all couped up in the house playing. The sky just fell... no lighting/thunder just a wall of rain. I called all three kids to go out onto the porch and without a word we all just knew, and ran... Out into the rain, dancing...

    Joyful

    It was the first summer I was a camp counsellor in upstate New York, and being from Wales I am used to a lot of rain. It hadn't rained for 6 weeks which is good (less bugs) and bad - cos it hadn't rained for 6 weeks. I love being in the rain and going for long walks in it...

    Summer Camp Square Dancing

    We would square dance at the camp I went to... and one summer it was simply pouring down rain.  There was no thunder or lightning, so the director had us out there, dancing through the puddles!  We all laughed ourselves silly, and loved just about every second of it.

    Hurricane

    It was a few years ago durring a hurricane. It was a level 3, I was under sea level and we couldn't get the door to close because the waves kept breaking on it. The rain died off a bit and I went outside to let my dog out. It was still raining and there were jelly fish in my yard...

    Oh Well..

    Okay so of course it was one of those many blistering summers we always get every year here in north carolina and we'd all been praying for rain for MONTHS. When it finally came me and my family were all sitting out on the porch with our fingers crossed. I think I was 16. I was...

    Always

    Whenever it rains, I like to go out and dance in it. Extremely freeing and exciting with lighting or not.

    Our First Dance

    I remember our first dance.  We had been invited by one of our favorite local musicians to a dance party at a venue in town.  There was quite a crowd there.  Anyway, we had a blast.  We had never really danced together before.  I was really impressed.  She says she's not...

    Let's Do It Again!

    I grew up beside six boys... the second youngest was my best friend.  Whenever there was a sun shower he'd be banging at my door telling me it was time. I loved it, we'd dance in the middle of the street and just have so much fun playing!  I'm thinking that next time it rains I...
