There is just something about the rain that relaxes me. Even when I have to deal with it in the car and in traffic. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's terrifying; but I still find peace in it. Maybe it's the smell, maybe it's the color that is makes the sky, or maybe it's some unrealized attractive memory I have of it. I love it.

It's this weather that has actually inspired two mixed CD's that have played in my car for years. {Mixed CD's - remember those? iPod's did a pretty good job at making them obsolete, nonetheless, they will always be one of my favorite things}

I'm not the only one who is in love with the rain. In fact, sooo many others have captured it in so many other ways, so I will share with you those that come to mind:

Shimmering Streets, Canal and St. Charles

Misty Morn on St. Charles
by R.C Davis
 Really, absolutely anything by RC Davis is beautiful. But, these who paintings he's really captured two of my favorite things - New Orleans in the rain. It feels magical, doesn't it?!

  1. Swimming in the lake while it is pouring rain is a magical feeling. (Until the lightening starts...then you have to climb out of the super dangerous water, and get onto the just-about as dangerous aluminum boat!) :) I love the rain when I can stay at home in my pajamas or play in it.
