    Recently..

    When I was younger, I was one scary @ss kid. I hated thunderstorms. That was until I figured out that thunder couldn't hurt you and that it was just a noise. Lightening still scared me tho. But I used it to my advantage as I got older because it helps me fall asleep. I am so...

    Streaming Through My Veins

    If there's one obvious thing about me, I love the rain more than any kind of weather. I could sit for hours listening to my favorite relaxing song, 'Koko Kara From the Home Planet Earth' and watch the rain fall. There's just something about rain that makes me feel wild and free...

    My Gram'S House

    I used to love going to my gram's house when it was storming. She lives way out in the country and the storms at her house always seemed so much better. Her power more times than not would go out. It made things interesting. =)

    Screens And Rain

    Ever since I was a little girl I loved the rain. I got in trouble for playing in it a lot. I often kept my screen window cracked open to hear it. My best creative ideas come to me with the natural sound of rain. Particularly a summer thunderstorm. The smell of ozone and the...

    Summer Storms

    I love when it's a warm summer evening, and I have all my windows open, and it begins to storm. I'm on a ground floor apartment so I can hear the droplets of rain hitting the ground. I sit by the window to hear it better, feel the gentle breeze enter my window, hear the low...

    The Sounds Of Rain

    It is raining outside my room and lightly thundering. The sound is soothing to my disquieting mind. I'm not quite in good spirits today and the rain is much welcomed on this Friday night. Don't know why it puts me at such ease, even if for a little while the distraction relaxes...

    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...

    Storms

    I love to hear the rain gaining momentum and the wind power through the trees. Riding out a hurricane is awesome. I am from hurricane alley so I got to do a lot of storm chasing as a child. The surfers used to go into the storm to ride the waves. Crazy!
