You guys remember that word, right? From high school English.
Petrichor. That enticing smell you get when rain first starts to fall on asphalt. It's been raining here all day, so I missed that first burst of scent this morning but I've watched it rain all day from my office window. It's been nice, and it's been aggravating (try running to the Bone Stretcher's office in pouring rain) and it's been making me wish I had my camera.
Oh wait, I carry my camera EVERYWHERE.
Okay, so I took this last week and not today, but it's hard to pass up sun rays like this.
The closest I'll ever get to driving my Clinical Manager's BMW 7-series. Okay, I lie. I backed it up about a foot to get it out of the roof's run-off so the rain would bead evenly. I felt so elegant.
Probably the closest I'll ever come to those cool high-speed photographs you see in high-end science magazines. Granted THOSE photographers are not squatting on the front porch shooting into the parking lot in driving wind and rain either.
