I love the rain. I think I was born to live somewhere rainy. All I want is for it to rain. I love it so much. I love the smell, the sound, the darkness. And I love how comfortable it makes me feel. Dave is the exact same way. We have both always been this way forever and it’s so fun to enjoy it together. We love rain so much that every night we fall asleep listening to rain and thunder on dave’s IPOD.Instead of complaining when it is dark and dreary outside, we take the opportunity to snuggle up and enjoy it. We get in comfy clothes, eat our fav treats, open the windows, listen and relax. If there is ever lightning and thunder we are so excited. We could sit outside and watch and listen to it all day/night long. Dave grew up in Illinois and had tons of big storms and when he moved to the west he was quite disappointed in what we called “thunder storms”. I kept telling him that in September we seem to get some good rain and thunder storms but up until this week he didn’t really believe me. The lightning and thunder this week was still pretty weak for him, but none the less exciting. I told Dave that maybe we should move somewhere that there is thunder and lightning storms on a regular basis. He looked it up online and found out that Florida averages one lighting storm every four days. Hmmm…maybe we’ll move there.
