I grew up in Chennai (called Madras a few years ago) in South India for the first 18 years of my life. I then lived in Trichy (also in South India) for the next 4 years of my life. The weather was like this – hot, hotter, hottest. Hot summers lasted a long time. Monsoons would bring some rain. But, not a lot.
That rarity in the rain might explain my current love affair with rain.
There is something about the rain….how it makes us feel…the sounds, the smells, the sights. Does it not?
Austin is soaked in sheer beauty today. Lightning, thunder, pouring rain.
My heart is soaked.
