Apart from the wet-bottom-of-jeans potential, I love the rain. The smell of rain on grass and hot concrete. Even just the sound of rain. Really, it only has 2 downsides; it ruins nice shoes (I have rectified this with some pretty excellent gumboots) and it makes people drive like idiots.
Thanks to a local cyclone up north, it's been raining now for 2 days solid. Yet again, we have another Summer in Australia where you can either be running from floods or running from bush fires. It's a mad, wild place.
Anyhoo, here are some rain-themed pics.
