Today it is pouring in Palo Alto and San Jose. I will be needing to hit up Target after work for an umbrella, but I'm so excited about the weather. I felt the flick-flick-flick of tiny rain spatter on my face waking up this morning (slept with the window open -- rain was blowing in a little bit).
I love the rain. Alex and I have talked about how cool it would be to live in Portland or Seattle, where it rains a great deal.
Of course, prolonged rain does get depressing after a while, but generally speaking I love it. I have a sixth sense for when it's going to rain. I can feel it, smell it, KNOW that it's going to rain . . . Of course, the grey clouds are a pretty big tip off, but even on overcast days, there's something distinctly different that goes along with the rain.
Tonight, on the way home, I'm picking up broth, green onions and a few other ingredients I'm missing so I can make potato soup.
Will blog about how this turns out . . .
