    What Does It Smell Like?

    For me, rain in the near horizon smells like freshly cut lawn grass! I have noticed, as the years pass by, the smell isn't as strong, or perhaps it smells tainted with other odors. I don't know if my smeller is fading in ability, or the polluted air is the fault. What does it...

    Texture

    Depending on where I am, the smell of rain is different. But it's more a texture to the air, once I get used to the prevailing humidity of the locale, it's normally a matter of getting a deep sniff of a waft of air and feeling the different moistness of the air mass. When I...

    The Coming Storm...

    Here in Tucson we actually have a summer monsoon rainy season, and people who have lived here for any length of time can tell they smell if it's going to rain.

    It Kind of Cool

    Me and my mom are always like "I think it is going to storm, I smell rain." I always thought it was something everyone could smell. I love the smell of rain before it comes. It one of the little things that not to many people pay attention too.

    ....aahhhh

    I love so many scents and smells... I have a very keen sense of smell and love it (most of the time). Right before the rain comes here in Florida there is a smell... fresh, clean and wonderful... the smell of approaching rain. I love the rain and the smell is my signal that...

    Rain Makes Me Happy

    I've noticed for a lot of people when it rains it puts them in a sort of somber mood, even up here where it rains quite often (Washington). For me it is different, I smell the freshness of the air just before it rains, and I light up, I love the smell, it is better than any...

    Smells Good

    It is actually the ozone that we smell and what a nice smell it is.  When I tell people that it is going to rain, sometimes they look at me funny.  I guess they don't have a tuned in weather nose.
