When I got off work tonight and walked outside, my nose was immediately hit with the smell of new rain. The ground was dry, the sky was clear, but that distinctive new rain smell was remarkable.

The weather report had called for rain as early as tomorrow afternoon, but that has been revised to rain on Saturday and Sunday. I hope it really comes. I would welcome a gully washer. We need rain! Lots of rain. Sweet-smelling rain.

Good night.
