Growing up in L.A. County probably has something to do with it. We get rain so seldom that when it does come, it's usually the lead story on local news. I've seen strangers greet each other with, "Isn't this rain great?"
So I'm really lovin' this week. El Niño has kicked in and it's been raining hard since Monday. I keep leaving my basement lab to walk up to the first floor and look out the windows, just to enjoy the fact that there is actual water, falling from the sky!
More than that, whenever it rains I almost feel like... God is doing me a favor. Like He knows how much I love it and sent it specially for me. :)
My folder of favorite desktop pictures includes all of these. No lie.
