The First Fall Rain

So I was pleasantly awoken at 9:30a.m. this morning to the sounds of heavy rain (well for California anyway). And I know that it's not technically fall for another two days, but I grew up in a beach community so summer for me will always be Memorial Day through Labor Day, regardless of the astronomy. There's something about the fall rain in Northern California that makes me feel right at home. Every year when it starts I always think back on the start of elementary and high school and the preparations for halloween that would be there for the first few months. There's something about the way the rain falls here that just reminds me of home. Something I guess I never quite got in L.A. It's weird how you can feel so homesick and so at home at the same time.
