I love the occasional rainy day, like today. I developed an affinity for the rain during my college days at Oregon State University. (I even have a playlist called Rainy Days on my ipod.) Rainy days tend to be productive and contemplative for me... not sure why, maybe it is the noise of the rain on the roof. I like the view from beneath a hood. And then there's the intriguing smell of rain, also known as petrichor. So, back to work!
