After the Rain

I like the way the air smells after the rain.  But that makes me wonder what it smelled like before it rained, because I didn’t notice until after.  Rain does to odor what a dropped glass does to sound in a crowded restaurant.

  1. All my life I’ve loved the smell of rain on asphalt. It can be duplicated by spraying water on asphalt, but it’s not the same; it doesn’t make you stop and smell that wonderful scent.

  2. And your analogy had the same effect on my thoughts! Thanks for my “stop to smell the roses” moment of the day!
