    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...

    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...

    Most people don't like thunderstorms,

    but I can feel calm during one, the peace it gives me. It takes me away from the stressful was of life.

    A big storm is coming in tomorrow night

    and it's really foggy today. I'm so excited. Maybe I'll get to practice shifting as a wolfie ^.^ but you never know. If not meditation is always the best.

    I just love the way it makes me feel.

    To me it's the perfect time to get some hot coco, grab a blanket, and find a good movie to watch. I like the sound of thunder and I enjoy glancing at the rain as it splatters against my window, as I relax for a nice change.

    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...

    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 makes me feel strangely sheltered

    and relaxed x3 anyone else feel like this? The only thing I don't like is that I worry for people that don't have a safe shelter.

    Storms inspire my creative side.

    When I hear raindrops' patter on the windows, feel thunder claps nearing, and see lightning flashing in the sky, I am invigorated. After midnight, a heavy rainstorm is set to unleash. Hopefully I can get some writing done as the storm rages outside.

    One of my favorite favorite things is standing

    outside watching a storm roll in. Everything wakes up, everything's alert. Even the air smells different. I'm like a moth to the flame. :)

    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.

    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...

    I love, love rain. I love the smell of soil

    and fresh trees and cold breeze. I live in a tropical country where we have a monsoon season of 2-4 months.Since I was little I sneaked out to get wet in rain. My grandfather's house had big, ancient trees in the front yard and ponds in two sides. I can't forget running through...

    It is finally Monsoon season.

    It is the only thing that makes these scorching summers worth it. A Thunderstorm rolled in tonight. I sat in the clearing in my apartment complex and enjoyed the rain and light show. I heard the longest continuous clap of thunder I have ever heard. The rain was really unsure...

    They make me feel fascinated

    and alive. My favorite storms are the heat storms with different color lightning. Pinks, purples and greens. The sound of the rain on the roof of my care. Watching the rain coming straight at me like lines of water drops down a window pane. Tears from the angles. Matching my...

    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...

    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.

    advantage of the super hot weather so we decided to go swimming to a river which is like 30 mins walking. When we arrived a massive storm appeared out of nowhere. Loved it! In a few seconds we were soaking wet to the last piece. We walked back home and laughed for whole time. We...

    The heat was building

    and you could sense the turbulence in the air along the Lake Michigan shoreline and then it just erupted -- massive lightning strikes, followed by round after round of crashing thunder and torrential rain. Fun to watch from my large condo windows. Glad I wasn't caught outside...

    Kinetic Vs Potential Energy

    The physics of a Thunderstorm. When the sky gets dark and the wind has that sharp edge. I go crazy. I want to run outside and be a part of the insanity. No matter where I am or what I'm doing, I want to feel it all around me. I love the rain pouring down drenching me and...

    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!

    and the pounding of rain, I'm not afraid to get wet! People always say "I don't want to go outside! It's raining!" Forget about that! I love nature with a passion ^_^

    I'm depressed everyday of my life.

    Sometimes it's worse sometimes it's easier to "do life". The best moments in my life is when I'm home alone, and it rains outside. Just by hearing the sound of pouring rain, or touching the cold drops makes me feel so happy inside, and I feel lucky to be alive. Isn't it...
