For those of you who have never experienced a good ole Kansas City thunderstorm, you should watch the video and see what it's like.
I've finally been away from Seattle long enough to enjoy a good walk in the rain like I used to, which is lucky for me, really since I got caught in the deluge this morning because I was late for work. And now, just like I did for months on end in Seattle, I'm sitting here working with my legs encased in ice cold denim. Totally awesome!
But another reason I am so happy about the rain here is that we actually have thunderstorms! I don't about where you live, but in Westport it was thundering and lightening almost all night. Every time I woke up, I was grinning because after two years without thunderstorms (it's not something that happens in Seattle), I was really beginning to miss them.
On top of that, my gratitude for rain in general has risen after I learned some unfortunate facts through research for a program @ work:
- water tables are dropping 5-8 feet each year (that's where we get our fresh water from mostly) which is compounded by the fact that
- deforestation is causing more rainfall to fall over the oceans instead of on land, because large groups of trees in part cause rain clouds to form (did you know that? I didn't).
What do you like about rain? Or hate?
