The Smell of Rain

Last summer, 2013, Colorado was impacted by what “those who know” have called a 500-year flood.  For sure, no one I know who has lived here for any length of time has ever seen anything like the rains that nearly drowned our state and wreaked such havoc from the front-range Rockies to the eastern plains.

Still, amidst all the pictures of devastation and destruction, there was some beauty to be found.

I took this picture of the rain when it was coming down quite hard.   Everything was so lush and green.   And, oh, the glorious smell of rain.  How I wish this picture could have captured that!
