Nature!! I love you!

I've been cribbing about the unbearable heat over the last few months, on chat, on twitter, you name it! Even the rains in the night didn't satisfy me just increased the humidity during the day. But today evening, I was blown away. Terrific rain with an added bonus - hails. I remember the first time we had a hail storm in Mysore. Cuz's and I were picking the ice from the grass and eating it. Today was a great day to get drenched, have hot coffee with some yummy pakodas.

Few plants in the garden were literally blown away, making them bare and lopsided. Yet, the rain was simply beautiful. Never thought I'd miss the rain and getting drenched soo bad.Of course where there is rain there is also the electricity playing hide and seek. And with dad missing the IPL, it was time for World Space! Sheesh...We have literally forgotten the wonderful radio thanks to the television!

Blissful evening! Leaving you with one of my all time fav songs by Bruce Springsteen, Dancing in the Dark. If you look closely the girl in the video is our very own Courtney Cox aka Monika from F.R.I.E.N.D.S

That is the best part of the rains, doesn't matter which part of the world one lives in, its fun to get drenched.

Hey there, I am a rain-lover myself..I used to live in a terrace flat before we shifted to this one. I never missed a single first-rainy day...

You definitely brought back my memories. :)

hey Jyoti........even i love rain but i dont like getting wet...i know people love getting drenched and shouting and etc etc but i guess i'm lil different!!!
I just enjoy seeing the rainfall and when it rains the first thing i do is have a hot coffee or chai and just relax.

Imp's Mom said...

hey aruna, i do know quite a few people who hate getting wet... and like to enjoy the rain just the way you do :-) but the common factor, is rain is the best relaxant!
