Refreshing Rainy Day

cropped-cropped-3189531099_630095a349_b.jpgSunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. Ā  John Ruskin

Have you ever just wanted to walk in the rain feeling the water drops on your face?

Children love to walk in the rain, unless we adults hurry them into a waiting car or building and teaching them to fear the water on their heads.

Children love to walk through the puddles and splash the water as far as they can.

Some animals love to sit out in the rain and birds start to sing their happy songs as though they’re calling to the clouds to drop as much as possible so their feathers can be cleansed.

Did you know that some animals can predict the weather?

There are hundreds of sayings and old tales about it, although there’s no scientific proof that it is true.

It has been said that cows become restless or lie down to save themselves a dry spot, although there is no scientific proof that this is true.

It has been said that birds fly high in the sky when the weather is good but fly low to the ground when there is a storm coming. They fly lower and closer to the ground avoiding air pressure.

Many people run from the rain to get to shelter yet some of us love to stroll along and enjoy the peace and tranquility of a refreshing rain on our face!
