The first sign was the sound. It's not a sound that we hear a lot of in So Cal. But to those who live her and love the rain, it is a sweet sound. Just a light dripping sound. Not too heavy, not too light, but slow and steady.
Next was the slight dampness when peering outside early this dark morning. It's not a heavy rain. That's okay.
Then was the smell. It's tough to describe that smell. Wet concrete, wet grass...wet wetness. A terrific smell.
The rain continues to fall lightly this morning. And I am glad.
