Yesterday it rained pretty hard, and not only hard but consistently! I wasn’t at home all day, but it was raining when I left home and when I got home about six hours later. I love the smell, the sound and the feel of the rain. I love when I’m driving past some trees and a bunch of drops fall on my windshield and it reminds me of the bus stop scene from “My Neighbor Totoro.”

What I don’t love is driving on the freeway in the rain. I didn’t realize until I got home just how tense I was from the experience. Nothing bad happened, but the heightened sense of danger of driving in a rain storm with decreased visibility and all that really unnerves me. And it doesn’t happen enough here for me to get used to the feeling either so it’ll probably just be like this for a good long time.

Looks like from the weather forecast it’s supposed to rain more this week. I guess the drought is canceled! Haha just kidding, three days of rain is pretty piddling compared to every other sunny day.
