rainy days

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said "The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain." Rainy days tend to get me down, but every once in a while, I'll pick up my camera and those wet, gloomy days suddenly become an adventure. 
"Something wicked this way comes"
In this case, we headed for the big front porch and watched the storm form in front of us.

 And we watched it move across the valley from left to right,
leaving rising moisture fog in it's wake.
 It can be mesmerizing to watch the patterns that rain drops make in inky, dark puddles.
Watching a heavy rain run down on the other side of a glass window produces
an ever-changing piece of fine abstract art.
 But not everyone dislikes rainy days...

...and if you're really lucky, there's a gift waiting for you at the end of the storm.
