There is something amazing about rain. About how it can appear and disappear as if by magic. How it can be on one side of the street but not the other. How it can travel in an instant across the country or at the very least across the state.
It can be disastrous as well. Floods are often swift and dangerous. People die. Houses are destroyed. That is far from beautiful and mysterious. I almost forget that part. Especially when it is lulling me to sleep.
