It started raining, very innocently at first, but the sky was packed tight with cloud and gradually the drops grew bigger and heavier” ~ Halldór Laxness
I am not a fan myself. As I have said many times before I am a summer person but sometimes summer rain is a wonderful thing. The smell is of the streets as the water cools the roads and pavements is perfect. You don’t get that smell at any other time of the year and of course it also provides moments like this where the street becomes a mirror providing a whole new view of the world around you.
