    Cool Rain On Hot Summer Stone....

    The odor fills my presence.... Finally, it has been so hot for so long... a late storm blows in. I thought it would blow through, but suddenly I smell the rain - finally at peace. The night has fallen early with the rolling clouds and I feel tears well to my eyes. Everything...

    Smell of Sanity

    After it rains to me Theire is a very lovely smell in the air. The smell just lets me know that everything will be alright. It always smells the same no matter where you are.

    First Rain of the Season

    It just started raining here in Northern California.  It is the first rain we have had in months.  I have my front door open so I can hear the raindrops hit the ground.  I love the smell of the grass as the drops keep pelting down on it.  I find the rain so...

    Most of the Time

    I do love the smell after it rains. So rich and full. But there are times like after the grass has been cut that I hate the smell. All I smell is the wet fresh grass and it is so overwhelming that it disgust me.

    Especially In Mexico

     The dirt there has a different smell than the dirt here and after it rains it smells heavenly. It sucks when it rains there because it leaves with with messy shoes and the probability of slipping, but even with that I hope that it rains just so I can enjoy the smell...

    Like God Gave the Earth a Bath

    I love the way everything looks freshly washed and moisturised, even the tree bark and nasty cement blocks.  I love how it smells before thunderstorms, too... pre-electric energy everywhere, like the ground is waiting for sex...

    Rain In the Desert Is Not An Oxymoron

    I live in Arizona, and I especially love the way it smells after the rain in the desert. Wet creosote and sage gives the air a pungent, slightly bitter aroma. Everything is clean, and there's a feeling of starting fresh.

    The summer storms that pop up in the evenings around here always make for some beautiful gray skies. Almost makes it worth it having to put up with the humidity.

    This storm blew in from offshore in the early hours of the morning. Lots of lightning from afar and fantastic to watch until the rain hit. 255mm in three hours.
