Petrichor

rainduck I reluctantly got up out of my nice warm bed to check on mum at 4 am. I usually let her dog out while she is in the bathroom. This morning was pretty similar to the others. But, then, I opened the door and was greeted by the best scent and sound in the world. RAIN! All the way to the hospital tonight, I mentioned to mum how much we needed rain. Oregon has gotten rain, our area of Alaska  has not much at all in the way of precipitation. The snow  has been steadily melting, leaving dry behind. It is a crazy breakup. Hoping this blessing of rain tonight extends into more than something to settle the dust. Wondering if it is possible to sleep with this huge smile on my face!
