Rain

Water (prompt)

This one was tough because there is so much that can be said about water. However, I remember when I was younger storms terrified me. Not because of the rain, but because of the thunder and lightening and wind. I grew up in a trailer at first on a farm and then we moved it to a little town. It was a 70 foot trailer with an added on room, but it was home.

When it stormed, the rain hitting the roof along with the wind just increased my anxiety because you heard and felt everything. This was before we got the rubber type roof put on the trailer. Back then they would put I believe it was pitch on it to keep it sealed from leaking.  The sound of the rain by itself hitting the roof was actually very relaxing. If you are able to have the window open in the summer time while it is raining the smell that it elicits is extremely intoxicating and helps with sleep. Now, if it rains to much, the worms come to the surface and then you have that wormy rainy smell and it’s not so much the best smell, but still lets you know that things are fresh. Water is the lifeblood of just about every living thing there is on this planet. Without it we would wither and die.
