Drenched. Happy.

Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.

- Roger Miller

I love summer rain.  Really, I love any rain, but summer rain is the best to go walking in.  Today I didn't bother with walking though.  I just stood in the backyard and savoured it.  Don't you love the feeling of dozens of big fat plonky rain drops hitting your skin all at the same time?  The assault of your senses with the sound of thousands of raindrops hitting the roof interspersed with loud claps of thunder (that make you jump and almost fall backwards over a chair), that wonderful summer rain smell, the feel as the raindrops hit, causing you to tingle all over.  So invigorating.  You just can't help but feel alive.

 Ok, yes it's our shed.  But look at the rain!

Drenched.  Happy.  Alive.

Standing outside in the rain, soaking in the energy.

Ha, ha, I was tempted! Jack and Jonathon went out and walked in it for about 20 minutes. I love the sound of the rain and the thunder. It seems so out of place after the searing heat. xx

You do look really happy and alive and well!! How we long for some rain here. We haven't had more than 6mm since the end of November.

We've had a lot of rain, but I agree... nothing like putting on rain slicker and boots and jumping in puddles!
