Rainy Day Blogfest (Oops)

Hey, look at that! I hit 250 followers. Sweet! I love you guys! Welcome to the Writing Chair. It's comfy here.

Today, Christine H over at The Writer's Hole is hosting the Rainy Day Blogfest. I signed up to participate, but I forgot until the last minute, and then I couldn't find any rainy scenes that I felt like sharing. *blush*

I do love the rain. I love the comfortable twilight of a gray sky and the sound of the rain on the roof. I love the powerful beauty of lightning and the sound of thunder rumbling through me. It reminds that there are bigger things than me in the world. I love the sweet, sharp scent of a rain shower. I love sitting in a tent in the mountains playing cards while the rain pounds outside. I love the clean air and the rainbows when the sun comes out. I live in a desert and every drop of rain is precious.

So, go check out the other entries in the Blogfest, who are hopefully less flaky than me. (So sorry!)

I love your thoughts on rain! I live in the Northwest . . .in the rain zone, but yet I still love all that wet stuff anyway.
By the way, I doubt that you are flaky. Busy, yes. Flaky, no.

Interesting thoughts on rain! I like the rain late at night in the summertime. I like how it evaporates by morning.

Hey, I'm finally getting around to reading the entries. Blogging about rain is perfectly acceptable.
