    I love the smell before

    and after it rains. Especially when the storm is coming from the gulf because the air smells like salt. It is such a refreshingly nostalgic smell. Makes me think of back when I was younger and things didn't seem to matter as much. Life was simpler, more laid back. That's what...

    So, I'm out on my Harley.

    ..it's starting to rain. I don't mind getting rained on or riding in the rain. Question: if I change my username, will the same people be in my circle, and will all of my messages, etc still be there?

    For those who don't know the smell of rain is

    called ozone it happens when lightning splits the oxygen and nitrogen molecules in the atmosphere and they recombine into nitric oxide and the substance interacts with the other atmosphere chemicals to give off the smell of rain http://m.livescience.com/37648-good-smells-rain...

    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...

    Especially when it's hot

    and humid, the steam comes out from the ground when the raindrop hits it.

    It's raining and I love the sound

    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...

    Sometimes, I like to just walk in the rain.

    My shoulders and chest will be soaked within the minute, my legs damp - but I don't mind. Shirt plastered to my skin, I'll walk, close my eyes...and just breathe. The strong, sweet scents of wet asphalt, soaked wood chips, and dew-laced plants mingle into a cocktail of...

    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...

    There is a word for that smell

    and it is petrichor. It is just one of the many things that makes me love rain. It seems like I can associate a smell with most things I love.

    It is my favorite smell.

    It was raining when I first came to the U.S. to stay with my cousin, and it was a happy day. I was free from the people who hurt me back home. I felt as if the rain washed me clean. I will always feel clean when I smell the rain.

    I love the smell when rain hits asphalt.

    The damp concrete smell is like a drug that I could inhale all day. I wish they made a candle for it.

    Afternoon thunderstorms have me smiling.

    I am sitting here with the windows open enjoying the smell of the rain that is floating in on the breeze. What a great way to end a busy work day.

    Well it's a rainy night.

    I wonder if the sun will ever shine again. Time to think. Too much on my mind. I can't sleep. I wish the rain would just wash me away. To be like that spot that eventually disappears after the water just keeps running over it. It gets smaller and smaller til you suddenly...

    Everything looks so beautiful

    after a heavy storm. I'm sad that it's over. But the beauty of its aftermath is enough to appease me.

    One of the best things in the world is smelling

    that unexplainable smell during/after its rained/raining. And when its paired with a beautiful sight like the image above how can you not just sit back and enjoy the droplets that fall from the sky adove.
