Monday Evening


I’ve forgotten how the air feels and smells after the first rain of a new Spring.  I’ve forgotten how clean and fresh the air smells now that some rain washed away the snow mold that’s been exposed and washed away some of the late season Winter dirt.  Nature has started her Spring cleaning once again.  It’s a cycle that’s as old as time.  It helps make the world new once again.

Everything is reawakening once again after a long central Minnesota hibernation.  The skies are grey just like the groggy haze one feels right after waking up in the morning.  Everything will brighten once again in its own due time.  But walking in this afternoon’s rain was like waking up to fresh brewed coffee in the morning.

  1. We experienced that same feeling last evening—spring rain. The spring scent accompanying the rain gives one just enough hope to believe that spring will in fact arrive after this miserable, bleak winter.
