Because everyone is talking about how terrible the rain is, I thought, why not post some things to like about the rain? After all, I’ve always loved spring rain. Winter rain and gloom is a terrible, depressing thing, but spring rain, with enough light, is beautiful. Here’s a few of my favorite things about the rain out there today:
The rain makes a great excuse for being late to work/meetings/appointments. And then when you get there, you get the kind of awe and respect normally reserved for soldiers returning from war
The effect of the clouds hanging out against the mountains makes L.A. feel more like either Hawaii or Vancouver – take your pick.
It’s really clean out there, and I can breathe deeply without inhaling a lungful of city
In a week or so, the effects of the rain will show up in the flowers, and it will be very very pretty in the foothills
What do you like about the rain?
