I Like Rain
We are expecting a few sprinkles here and there but it does seem odd to talk about rain in the desert. I don't know where it started but I have always loved the smell of rain. I've been told many reasons for why the smell happens and the one that I believed for the longest time was that the droplets were bringing the smell of ozone down with them. Then I read this article about the subject. Since we aren't in a very wooded area, I think the smell is from the acidic properties of the rain on our surroundings. Whatever it is exactly, it is my favorite smell closely followed by vanilla (dunno why.) So, possibly one of the reasons that "I Like Rain" by the Jean-Paul Sartre Experience is my favorite tune could be something deeper.
