Drip













My favorite music isn’t made by humans. There’s no sweeter sound than rain. I love listening to its arrhythmic patter from inside a car at night. It’s a reassuring sound, even as it evokes old memories and life's unanswered questions.

    I love a rainy night. I love to hear the thunder, watch the lightening when it lights up the sky.

    Count me in. Nothing beats a good thunderstorm. Especially if it's just noise and light without the tornados.

    I also like it right after a huge snowstorm. I like to get out right after it stops. Everything is blindingly white incredibly quiet!

    Awesome.

    I can't sing as well you guys, but I love a rainy day. I could watch rain falling for hours.

    It forces one to think, in a way that sunshine never can.

    XO-
    Speaking of thunderstoms, when I lived in western Kansas I used to marvel at watching a T-Storm advance up the prairie. Because of the horizontal nature of the landscape, you could see these monster anvil clouds coming from hundreds of miles away. Very impressive.

    emaw - I experienced the same sort of awe on a trip to Wyoming. I was far enough away, and high enough (in relation to sea level, not "pinkfloydhigh"), that I could see the entire thunderstorm super cell. Top to bottom, side to side, surrounded by sunny, uneffected areas.

    Incredible.

    And way cooler than your story because I was in Wyoming instead of western Kansas.

    Heh heh heh heh!!!

    (I'll bet he never even comes back here to check this post! SCORE!)
