On my vacation last weekend,
I couldn’t believe how dry
it was in Las Vegas.
My skin still hasn’t quite recovered!

So, I nearly jumped for joy
when the rain clouds rolled in this week
here in the Midwest.
We often take for granted
these soaking spring rains,
with that big, booming thunder
and those dazzling cracks of lightning.

Not only does it bring new life
to the grass and trees and plants,
but I swear my body feels more alive, too.
Let it rain!
