Rainy day

I woke up to the most pleasant and unusual sound this morning, rain on the rooftop.   I miss the rain.  Colorado is one of the sunniest states you can live in and most of our precipitation is the cold, white, silent type.   Actually, it started as rain and then turned into slush.  It rains slushies here. Juliana told me about an Indian concept of masculine rain and feminine rain.  Masculine rain is accompanied by a storm of more or less violence.  Feminine rain is the soft, soothing, soaking kind.  This was a feminine rain.  So nice….

isn’t the moisture GREAT? We got about 6 inches of snow! It’s been melting all night and running down the gutters, I love the sound too.
