I Like The Smell When It Rains

I love the smell when its about to rain... 21,773 People

    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...

    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...

    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 :)

    I like the smell of rain on concrete,

    those first drops as they hit the ground.

    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.

    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 raining and I love the sound

    because it's nighttime. It's like music to my ears. Ohh God, thank you for the rain. It can surely help the hot feeling of summer 👍👍

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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...

    Thunderstorms are best,

    when it's been really humid and it seems like the earth is thirsty. Thunderstorms and light early morning rain.

    We had a downpour today

    after weeks of warm humid weather. I just had to go outside to experience the smell. The earthy, amazing, grounding smell of rain after a hot spell :-)

    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.

    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.

    I love the rain, the sound. The rain gives me a different kind of feeling. When it rains I have mixed emotions. I feel happy and sad at the same time. It's just me ..👍
