On rainy nights

It’s been wet here in Southern California. The streets are slick with rainwater. The smell of rain is in the air. Flash floods are occurring in some areas, and mudslides have occurred where snow had fallen just several weeks prior. 

In a state known for droughts and forest fires, rain has been welcome in some ways. In others, though, it’s been problematic – for infrastructure, for any outdoor work, and for people’s homes. 

For me, though, I think I like the rain. I like the sound of rain on windows, and the wind rustling, if not howling, through the trees. I don’t like power outages, or leaky apartments. But, there’s little more relaxing than a bit of rain when drifiting off to sleep.
