And The Rain, Rain, Rain Came Down

The Mrs tells me quite often that she loves to watch the rain come in. Today I had the chance to do just that.

It is an entirely different experience seeing rain come in across the water from the 25th floor instead of at ground level. It gives you the feeling of being in the gathering clouds and a part of the atmosphere.

The day started out sunny. And beautiful.

Then about 2:00 in the afternoon the clouds to the north got very dark and the northern end of the beach started disappearing.

Then it moved in and surrounded us with rain. Nothing special or violent. Just a simple rain but with the feeling of being in the middle of it instead of at the bottom of it.

People who live or work in tall buildings get to have this experience all the time and I'm sure it seems silly to some that I would even find this note worthy. But I do. New experiences are good for us no matter how big or how little. A new perspective is a blessing. Thanks for todays small blessing.
