I've probably written about this earlier, but I love the sound of rain. Especially when the rest of the world is quiet, and there is nothing but the sound of water splashing against leaves on the trees, or hitting the occasional branch with a more solid splat. When there's no wind and it is warm enough for the windows to be open I don't need the radio or television on, I will just listen to the sound of the rain. Today was almost perfect in that regard, with a soundtrack of the gentle, almost continuous rainfall that came straight down.
