I love the smell of impending rain. The earth has a musky aroma cement sidewalks smell like wet stones. If you have ever driven through farmland in the spring after they lay cow manure on the fields; did you notice after the rain it smells even worse but it is working with the cow poop to make the fields ready for edible bounty?
I love the sound of thunder and to watch a lightening storm and guess how far away it is. Of course, if it's close it wreaks havoc on our power and black outs are imminent.
There is something magical about storms and how alive the atmosphere gets during one. I never cease to wonder at it's power.
