I Like It When It Rains

SEND TO A FRIEND:

    Droplets of water sploshing down into the mud,

    the smell of fresh rain filling the air. Standing beneath the gutter awaiting the rush of water gathered there. Staring into the distance my vision blurred feeling the sense of happiness fill me to the brim. (This is what I remember feeling and doing in a storm when i was...

    I don't like being in the rain

    but the sound of rain and thunder is soothing to me. when was younger, a friend and I went out in the pouring rain, floods, splashed through all puddles, soaked to the skin, was fun, sliding on grass in summer time

    There's nothing like sitting in the rain.

    For a while you feel like nothing else in the messed up world matters.

    Daily average: 10.5 hours at ork.

    1.5 hours commuting. 6 hours sleeping. 2 hours winding down with a book. 2 hours with the girlfriend. 2 hours sitting out on the balcony in the rain, listen, smelling, and perhaps snoring. Growing up in the Pacific North West, rain is not only a fact of life, but a comforter to...

    I love september rains.

    Not harsh, stormy ones. The ones that make you feel like "aw the rain is cool, i can walk out there". I always miss september and crave for it all year long. But I love rain the most when I weep. My tears mix with rain drops, my voice gets lost in the tapping of rain drops... It...

    I have been known to take off my clothes to

    feel the rain on my body. It's a great feeling to stand naked in a rain storm, communing with the fury.

    I mowed my parents lawn in the rain today!

    I was almost done and it started to pour. So I went ahead and finished it. But by the time I was done I was completely soaked- dripping wet!! So I stepped into the house and took everything off right at the door (good thing nobody was home, ha!) and got into some warm dry...

    I like it when it rains

    and I'm indoors feeling sheltered. I like it when it rains and I'm outdoors on a Summer's day. I like it when it rains in the middle of the night and I awaken. I like it when it rains. I like it less when it looks like rain after I've just cleaned the windows. Mm. :-)

    It's raining at the moment,

    and I'm torn between going and dancing in it, and staying by the fire with House and this hot food.

    Simply put, I love the rain.

    The smell it emanates of the grass in the morning dew. The way it pitters and patters down upon my roof comfortingly. The way it tickles my cheeks as it runs down them like tears. It makes me feel a part of the world, unlike bright sunlight it isn't blinding, but soothing even...

    It was raining pretty hard

    where my mom lives, and I ran through the parking lot of her apartment complex barefoot for no other reason than it was raining and I could. she was on the phone with someone at the time and all I heard was her saying I had lost my mind. :)

    I was gonna sleep last night

    and it was raining, so I thought I'd open the window to listen to it. Guess what? Some guys started playing music on high volume outside my house with a bass box so my walls vibrated. Super fun. It was past midnight, too. Times like that I feel like I want to kill a man.

    Had a brief rain shower this evening.

    I sat out on the patio and enjoyed the sounds and the smells. Helped cool things off a bit too.

    One time I was working at home on my computer

    for hours. I looked out the back door and it was pouring with heavy rain. I felt drawn to it. Fully clothed I walked out into it. Spread my arms wide and spun in circles. I was soaked and alone. Then something caught my eye, I saw the neighbour in the upstairs window which...

    IT'S RAINING~!!! Well,

    sprinkling on and off, but close enough! Especially considering I'm in Southern California and I don't see it much anymore. Walking between classes to the feel of cold rain is the best thing ever. Motivates me to work harder :3
