    I feel as though nature's beauty is intensified

    after it rains. The ground is darker, which makes the leaves greener and flowers brighter. And the smell is just so relaxing. It's one of my favorite parts of being human:)

    There is just something about the way the earth

    smells after a good rain. It smells so pure to me. It makes me feel like putting a homemade soup on the stove and coffee in my mug and get some well deserved zen on my deck. It's one of the main reasons I love spring. The old adage April showers bring May flowers! I love it :)

    I love the smell of the air

    when it rains, afterwards it's clean, and new, how i love the earthy smell and wonder what causes it, oxygen atoms or turned over soil....what ever it is it's a smell that cannot be duplicated it's amazingly clean.

    i like the smell that emmanates

    when it rains...especially after a hot day...it triggers a sense of relief even before the actual relief sets in!

    I love rainstorms. They're

    so awesome! And there's a certain smell to them that draws me outside, where I tilt my face up towards the sky and feel the water on my face as thunder rumbles all around. Ok I know that sounds sappy and exaggerated, but yeah. Haha I love the smell of rainstorms! :P

    Rain smells so fresh.

    Rain isn't just plain water; rain is something so unique to give that smell that isn't explainable. It makes me smile to inhale the sweet scent of rain.

    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...

    Living in this reality can make you wonder WHY

    we are here! Personally... My gut tells me that we are here to learn life's lessons and NOT repeat them! To know oneself is to truly know others! Why let ego get in your way in seeking a higher standard of thought?! Go in peace my fellow humans & why the hell take yourself...

    Whenever I leave the house,

    I feel like something bad is going to happen, then when it rains all my worries are washed away. The smell of the rain after it has fallen, makes me feel so free.

    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...

    Hey all, I can love and hate a rainy day

    but I can remember quaint rainy days and the stillness in the house looking out the window listening to it pour. The smell after is unique to where I was. Florida had a steamy but cool air after the rain and I can't explain the smell it's more if a feeling.

    I remember I loved to read books

    when it was all wet and gloomy and foggy outside. It definitely made the PERFECT twilight weather. BUT Now I hate it because I'm in track and I have to run every morning at 7:30 to 9 and it's always wet and humid and it's just horrible for my hair it makes it go POOF.

    Just drizzled for a few minutes this evening,

    the heavy wind being a spoilsport. Hope it rains longer. Will reduce the heat & dust and the whole city can sure do with some cleaning not to forget the flora & fauna.

    I love summer rain it just smells

    so refreshing- when the windows can be left opened to let the smell inside. Storms get me excited, I believe it's the unpredictability that's so appealing to me. Love to listen to rain hitting the window, like long fingernails tapping at my window.

    When it rains, I feel at peace with the smell

    afterwards and before it rains. I can smell the rain. It's calming. I like to run after and before it rains. It helps me forget about the world. :)

    The salty tangy smell

    and the cold drizzly touch of rain is so calming. It's peaceful to just relax to the sounds of rain and just close my eyes and dream.
