    Renewal

    Not only is it soothing but the rain signals the renewal of life and replenishing of the once dry earth. The growing back of the dry and damaged and the new life be it plant or animal.

    Better When I'm Sheltered

    I suppose I can enjoy getting soaked though, depending on the day. I am an avid motorcyclist so it can be an inconvenience, but at least if you get caught on a bad day you know it can't get any worse so you just kinda let go and enjoy the spritz of the shower. I've been...

    When It's Raining.

    I'm completely at peace. Everything in my life could be falling apart but when it's raining, I'm calm. It soothes me like nothing else can. Nothing else could compete with the sound of rain. Listening to rain is one of my favorite things to do.

    Fireside

    Sitting in front of the fire, nice and toasty in a comfy chair. A good book and a nice cup of tea. Listening to the rain pour outside. Heavenly.

    Peaceful

    I think rain is peaceful, even when it is a ferocious thunder storm.  It washes everything clean.  It soothes me like no sunny day ever could.  Sunny days are so predictable.  Rain can be soft or hard, crashing against the roof, or just trickling down the...

    Soothing Sounds

    When its raining it is one of the most soothing things for me. The sound of the raindrops falling and pooling soothe my harried soul. Its a good time to curl up in a warm blanket and read a good book. Or put in my buds and play my ipod while I watch it come down outside. Rain...

    Heavy Summer Rain

    i love the summer months that clogs the sky with thunder storms, the angry thrashing of air resistence against the lightning, the flashing beauty of nature. how the rain seems to monsoon like a shower on full. warm raindrops and heated air currents, and seeing the raindrops...

    Rain, Yum!

    I love how the air smells before it rains. I love how the air changes. I love the way the rain comes down in sheets, or just sprinkles. I love all the different terms for different types of rain. I love the storm clouds, and how beautiful they look. I love the sound it makes...
