summer showers

It is pouring right now outside...I love hearing the beat of the raindrops against my large bedroom window.

The miserable stifling windless heat that we've been suffering through the last several weeks gets a small reprieve in a gusty summer shower.

I love summer storms--warm enough to run out and play in and not get chilled, warm enough to not need a jacket, to just open up your arms and twirl around in the cool wet downpour.

The smell. Just can't beat the smell of rain. I absolutely love it, as long as I am home, nice and safe, my loved ones gathered around me.

Like a little gift from God: "Here you go, Arizona! I haven't forgotten about you. Have a drink."

I well remember what a treat it is to get a rainy day in this middle of a desert summer! Enjoy :)
