Yesterday, a Spring rain hit the area most likely for the first time this year. Rain in Spring has a different feel and smell than a cold Winter rain. Perhaps the weather is coming from a different direction globally, or it's just the temperature of the air and water mixing that causes it. But there is definitely a different quality to it. It started raining before I left work and the smell of it, the full feel of it hit me softly in the face as I walked out the front door.
I like Spring. Spring is newness, freshness and change. It's much better than how I feel about Fall, though I should say that I like Fall a lot for it's scrunchy leaves and it's sweatshirts and Halloween. But there is something involving closure with Fall and Winter.
Of course, in a few months I'll be bragging about how much I like Summer, but for now Spring will do.
