In this case I do not want the rain to go away. I want it to continue to downpour until all the humidity has left the air and I can walk outside without feeling like I will stick to everything. I want to have a giant thunderstorm and sit by the window, curled up with a good book. Seeing as the weather often does not do as I want, I will enjoy what rain we get while it's here. The first summer I was in NC, there was a drought so bad that large towns were looking at a day or two's supply of water and that was it. I think that this year, we are in no such danger, and for that I am grateful.
