It’s always a strange feeling after it rains here in Santa Barbara. I think that’s because it hardly ever does! In all of 2007, I can really only remember maybe 2 serious hard days of rain, but when it does rain it absolutely pours. In actuality, the storm here in SB wasn’t as bad as I think they were saying it was going to be, but it was pretty cool watching it come down all day.
Because it never rains here, the few times it does, everything smells really different – a lot more fresh and clean I guess, and the look of the landscape wet is just plain weird, because it’s never wet here!
I took a few minutes to just run outside and take a few pictures from around our backyard just for fun.
