    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...

    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...

    Nice and Fresh

    I love how it smells after it rains.  It smells so fresh and new.  I love it.  It reminds you of a spring day.

    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.

    Full of Good Things

    Rain is increasingly becoming a rare commodity where I live in Australia. Already Adelaide is the driest city on the world's driest continent besides Antarctica (where precipitation is vital but hardly an immediate need).  The annual rainfall here has been down for several...

    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.

    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.

    I grew up in Southern NJ, where thunderstorms were a nightly thing during summer. 2 years ago I moved to bumf#ck Idaho where I'm lucky if it rains once a month. I hate this state.
