it has just gotten very dark at my house.
this summer has been full of thunderstorms...

what is it about rain and thunder that is so soothing yet exhilarating?

if i had a daughter i would name her rain. 

the sound of water.... brings us back
from where we came.
click below and listen-

"Rain is liquid precipitation, as opposed to non-liquid kinds of precipitation such as snowhail and sleet. Rain requires the presence of a thick layer of the atmosphere to have temperatures above the melting point of water near and above the Earth's surface. On Earth, it is the condensation of atmosphericwater vapor into drops of water heavy enough to fall, often making it to the surface. Two processes, possibly acting together, can lead to air becoming saturated leading to rainfall: cooling the air or adding water vapour to the air. Virga is precipitation that begins falling to the earth but evaporates before reaching the surface; it is one of the ways air can become saturated. Precipitation forms via collision with other rain drops or ice crystals within a cloud. Rain drops range in size from oblate, pancake-like shapes for larger drops, to small spheres for smaller drops"
