I’ve lived in apartment buildings for most of my life, and I actually prefer it, but one thing I miss about living in a house is the sound that rain makes all of a sudden when it starts pouring and pounding on your roof.
My phone has been going off all day with news alerts telling me about flood watches, advisories, and warnings. I’m not sure all of them were issued, but there was definitely a funnel cloud warning at one point this afternoon. Oddly specific.
This weekend has been a humid one. And when I say humid I mean so hot. No wind at all.
So when the rain started to fall and I happened to look outside our apartment window and hear the faint sound of it falling, it always makes me happy to know that I’m warm and safe inside while the world gets a well-deserved shower.
Just look at that gray sky.
