Whether the weather be fine,

Whether the weather be not,

Whether the weather be cold,

Whether the weather be hot,

We'll weather the weather,

Whatever the whether,

Whether we like it or not

~Author Unknown

[Rain] is beautiful when it comes hurried and passionate, fleeing from the storm wind, hurled, like a volley of small musketry, against your streaming panes.... It is beautiful in the Midsummer, when it comes in light, soft showers, or, more in earnest, accompanied with thunder-music, straight and heavy; when, as the poet says

"Rolling as in sleep,

Low thunders bring the mellow rain."

~John Richard Vernon, "The Beauty of Rain," 1863, quoting Alfred Tennyson

Rain, we finally have had some the last two days, and one can almost hear the grass, trees, and flowers say "Thank you, Lord"! It also brought the high temps down, only for a day or so, but any relief is welcome.

Thanks for the quote, Lilo; nice way to start the morning as I head to church.

Ever noticed that, depending on location, it smells different after a rain? City and towns smell different from country and there it depends on the vegetation and the earth.
