    When the grass leaves

    and dirt all around you are wet, intoxicating, and the air is moist. If somehow it could be put into a cologne bottle I'd be like those girls from the ace commercials on TV .. Plus being able to pull on my rain boots added bonus :)

    It is coming up on the rainy season soon here

    in Florida. I can always tell when it's going to rain. I can feel it in my joints. I smell it in the air. Plus the black clouds spit out lightening. I love being out in the rain here. The only thing that would hold me back would be lightening. One day a friend and I, in...

    so little rain that when it does the pavement steams and the water smells so incredible as it washes away the dirt and dust. there is no mustiness or mildew out here so it is always fresh as can be, invigorating

    I love when it first starts to rain.

    The smell is so refreshing. I always wan to do one of two things. Either curl up by an open window and read a good book. Or.. Put Ina pretty dress an go dance in the rain. Either one would be satisfactory. Unfortunate I usually have to sit inside a stuffy building all day...

    Our Metal Roof

    Our home is stone with a metal roof. You cannot see the metal from the inside unless you are in the kitchen which has a wood cookstove. The metal is exposed between the rafters as the chimney exits the kitchen providing a wonderful drum for the rain! I love to sit and listen...

    It always reminds me of this one time with my

    mum she was biking home. I was so small I was on the bike seat. It started to pour and she was freaking out trying to get us home. I miss her. She's stuck in her addiction and we had a falling out. She screwed me over for a bunch of money. I don't speak to her anymore.

    The smell of wet grass,

    as the rain falls out of the grey sky, and I am sitting here at home, watching the patterns of raindrops on the windows. My thoughts in a turmoil, my heart beating faster, as the sound of the rain soothes and calms me, I take a deep breath and I know that the sun will shine...

    Good it's almost addicting!

    I don't know why the smell is so perfect! Ya know what also smells good: Old car AC units being turned on after a long period of non use. Like...the smell of dust I guess. Who knows why we like the smell of wet concrete or Old AC units.

    The other day after something happened I

    decided to take a nice stroll in rain through cut grass, just to miles because I pretend not to have time, though I'm not sure what really kept me. I was expecting it to improve my mood, seeing as it combined a few things I like; cut grass has a peculiar smell to it too, I think...

    I'm watching the clouds

    and whisks cross along the waters face. I love the smell of rain, the bluster of cold right before the clouds swell and open up. The scatter of raindrops along the grey pavement painting the city. I sit and wait for it, knowing it's coming is all the more reason to watch. New...

    I like the smell of damp concrete.

    Such as in a parking garage after it rains. Especially underground parking garages... so good.

    Nothing is more relaxing,

    more familiar than the smell of rain. Here in the Midwest, we don't get very much rain. I miss living in Seattle....I want rain boots and an umbrella again!!

    it's like a free medication!

    and have you noticed not everyone can understand the observation "hmm! smells like rain!"? I wonder whether it's only a few of us that can smell it.

    Rain takes me back to the age of innocence,

    when everything was carefree and the most exciting adventure was to run out side and dance around while you got rained on. The first drops that hit your skin gives you the shivers and your breath catches in your chest and you hold it there and slowly your body starts to adjust...

    It's silver, and orange,

    lime and caffeine. It smiles but glistens, and in staccato it resonates. It's blue, and purple, golden and rehearsed.

    I am in love with the smell of rain.

    Rain to me is like natures shower, washing away the yesterdays and all it had to offer. I love curling up and watching the drops tumble to the earth as gravity pulls them closer to the ever longing and thirsty ground. Its a therapy session in its own right if I may.

    not pouring, but not sprinkling either. Ahh... the best atmosphere. Breathe in deep and slow, breathe out again the same way. Rain... eternally soothing.

    It's raining now. It's 1:40 am

    and I can hear it beat over the roof and down the gutters. It pulses and flows back and forth, lulling me into a pleasant state.
