it smelled good

The heat wave finally broke with thunderstorms last night. After god knows how long baking in the kiln of minnesota heat wave we had our relief. We laughed that we were enjoying the cool 80 degree weather!
It smelled of summer rain all day. Spring rain smells of fresh dirt and new grass. Fall rain has a chill, it smells smokey, there’s a little twinge of winter in the air. Summer rain smells of heat, almost sultry in its effect. Summer rain washes away the ozone and smog and pollution and for a brief time reminds you that there is a planet under your feet.
