    I Come Alive In Wild Weather

    I love wild rain, thunder and lightning. I get excited when it gets really windy and dark and everyone else is freaking out. I love the rain too. Especially in the summer because of the way it makes the earth smell. I seem to be the only person I know who feels this way. Well...

    Lately I have been lucky,

    when I go outside to sit on the front step it is peaceful, cool and dark with stars shining through the trees. Not tonight,my favorite spot has morphed into grey skies , angry clouds, lightning crawling across the sky in crazy patterns followed by deep pounding thunder and...

    The Beach

    This is right up there with one of my favorite moments of all time. I was in Florida and the sky got black. My buddy and I were sitting on my porch having a couple beers watching the wind pick up and the clouds roll in. So of course I have this bright idea to go to the beach. It...

    ME TO! Kansas has some funky weather.

    I love it on a hot day when, at noon, the birds stop chirping and everything has a yellow hue to it. An hour passes with no breeze at all. The clouds are turning blue/black and are growing taller and taller. It starts to sprinkle a little and the drops are cold. Then, all of a...

    Through The Storm.

    This afternoon I was walking home after running an errand. Waterproof jacket, waterproof boots and some light rain. I was content, stomping through the late afternoon darkness with the sound of raindrops bouncing off my hood.A flash of white and magenta lit up the sky; I smile...

    I Do...But Enough Already!

    This is the fifth day in a row that we've had heavy rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. It's enough already! I want to come home from work and go in the pool and relax. I want to swim a bit and take my dogs in the pool for a swim but this rain and lighting and...

    I layed down in the middle of my garden,

    while it rained on Sunday night. I got soaked, the rain was warm & felt beautiful. I don't know why, I just wanted to. I also sat in an outdoor hot tub, after dark, for the first time, on Saturday night.

    Thunder Roars

    I love the rain as it falls.. The feeling of it cold on my skin, stinging as it beats down.. The sound of the splashing puddles, the dripping and gushing as it rolls off the roof.. I love the sound in the clouds.. The rumble and rolling.. The menacing grey as it crowds the sky...

    Rain Relaxes, Thunder Excites

    When it rains I like the way my the skin on my face softens and my eyes relax in the softer light. If the wind gets up I love the coldness on the tip of my nose and if my ears get really cold I love that tingle of getting warmed again when I get back home...

    The Comfort And The Power

    When I was young, I loved thunderstorms! I would go outside and sit on the porch on our hand-painted bench and just wait for the excitement to begin. While other children and their pets ran indoors with their tails between their legs, I got ready to spend a good hour or so...

    Rain Makes Me Sleepy.

    I get so tried when its raining. The sound or rain makes me want to pass out. Aside from that, rain is just beautiful. Its unexplainable. It just makes me smile. I love it when it rains. My family always freaks out when its raining. Running to the car as to not get wet, but I...

    I love staying inside

    and surrounding myself with blankets in bed reading a good book, while i can play a song but just barley here the music playing in the background because the sound of rain against my window is overpowering the music with a quick faint rumble of thunder ever now and again.

    There is nothing like the smell of wet earth

    after a storm. The feeling of the rain on your skin. The smell of it on your arms. There is nothing like the rainbow that peeks out after the rain or the sound of violent rain as you are cuddled in your bed with a good book . There is nothing like hugging someone close as you...

    It's been raining all day with wicked thunder

    that made for a good light show. The thunder felt as though an earthquake rolled through the ground, shaking the entire house. We haven't had a storm like this in a very long time. Its a nice relief from the hot sun and my plants are loved from above!

    It seems nature knows what I need.

    The sky is getting ready to release a deluge of rain as I prepare to leave the office. A bit of a symbolic cleansing before starting the weekend.

    The sun was bright. It's heat beat down on her

    Sometimes when it's pouring,

    I'll go outside and stand in the rain until I'm soaked. In a sense, it liberates me. It gives me a chance to sort my thoughts and feelings. It makes me feel alive and appreciate the little things in life.

    I'm the sort of person

    who likes cold weather. I like it when it gets dark at 5 pm. But the sound of rain and thunderstorms are really nice. They make me feel happy and sad at the same time. Of course it's nice to have some sunshine too. But I prefer cold wet and windy weather.

    Life in the Mojave Desert is life without rain.

    Bad enough Southern California is in a severe drought. The Mojave Desert hasn't had measurable rain in over five months. Any "rain" was just enough drops to spot the car. This week we have four days of possible monsoons and thunderstorms. I hope to smell and feel the rainfall...
