Rain

You should hear it. It pounds the small metal overhang of my shop's back door like lead shot pellets. If given a chance I'd take a long nap.

Such a peaceful sound.

I love rain...

  1. It can be an unusually relaxing sound unless you need to dash out into it. Then it is the sound of Mother Nature laughing at you.

  2. True enough. I've seen grown men run thru the rain as if the wet would melt their pretty hair. Thanks, my friend.

  3. Love the rain--the gentle sound of it on my aluminum porch roof. . .And even the heavy downpour on the same roof! It makes trees look so clean and fresh afterwards. We really need the rain. . .my pond is falling again.

  6. Rain is nature's lullaby, I think. August is our "wet" month here, and it's been raining almost continuously since the 1st. You'd probably have trouble staying awake, here; I know we are!

  8. As I find myself with a day off and a sore back, hearing the thunder to the south makes me contemplate a slight resting of the eyes myself. :)

  9. I'm loving this Floruba weather. Joe and I watch the weather channel, see what you're getting, head out to watch the lightening, then wait......

    I detest steady heat and constant bright sun. But for the past two weeks, every night at 5 we get our 30 minute thunderstorm. Wonderful.

    It rarely rains such large drops to pound the roof, but it did last night. We sat outside under the porch roof, and felt like Kings.

  10. Can't beat rain on a tin (or any kind of metal) roof. We used to have a lake cabin that we built with a tin roof... lots of quality nap time :)

  11. Stationed in Thailand for a year - lived downtown in house on stilts with a metal roof. Rain is rain and a monsoon is lots and lots of rain! Slept good! Well, we were up under a triple canopy of palm trees on a slope up from the beach on the Gulf of Siam.


    Great post!
