The sounds of rain

I've mentioned briefly, I think, in the past, about waking up to the sounds of rain falling on the skylight back home. It's a soothing sound, one that usually made me snuggle in further into my razai and snooze a little while longer.

It's been raining off and on for the past week or so here. My classmates don't undertsnad my fascination and delight with rain; it makes them utterly gloomy.

Rain here brings out a tinge of nostalgia and homesickness in me. Why, I'm not sure, given that it's greener here, there are no traffic jams, and the roads can last beyond a ten minute shower.

But it annoys me no end that while I can hear every step taken by my neighbors who live right above me, the sounds of rain get completely shut out from my apartment.

I love rain toooo. I carry a brolly for about 1/4th of the year, but only use it something like twice when it's really bad i.e. hailstones could take an eye out OR you get drenched in a few seconds. It's rare to get caught in that situation though. Also it rains a lot in WINTER, so I understand their gloom, but I like it :) (apart from having to carry a brolly which is tedious and I don't want to have to use it)

(word verification is 'hadicas' that's almost my name :) )
