The Rain Falls in SLO

In the past week we’ve had two days with rain. When you’re in a drought this is exciting. I found myself inhaling deeply, breathing in the wonderful scent that accompanies the gentle rain shower. The hills around SLO are already showing hints of green. Soon things will be bright and lush (though we’re going to need more rain to give the green an extended stay).

The Central Coast has been beautiful since I moved here. One of the largest downsides is the oppressive dryness.

When it has been dry for months on end, then I fully appreciate the rain. The sound of rain drops becomes music.

It rained today, and I am happy.
