Generally speaking, I love the rain. I love to sit on the screen porch and watch the rain. I love to sit in the library and watch the rain. I loved the rain when I was a kid, especially the summer rain at my grandpa's farm. Sitting in the barn listening to rain on the tin roof. The only time in my life when I didn't like rain was when I did home care visits in the inner city. Trying to juggle equipment, arriving at the door dripping wet...no, rain is not a friend to home care nurses.
We have had so much rain lately that I really can't say I still enjoy it. But yesterday around sunset brought a beautiful rainy sight.

The setting sun was shining through the rain in the yard.
A change in camera settings almost obscures the rain.
Large drops falling straight down
We certainly didn't need more rain, but it was beautiful.
Longfellow said it best,
"The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain."
