After Nature Had Her Way
I always love that period right after a rain or heavy storm, provided I don’t have to vacuum water out from our basement. The sky is clear and the air is clean; I can smell the freshness in it. It’s a very distinctive scent of life renewed. Plants shake off the shower that washed away dust and dirt from their leaves. Birds come out chirping and looking for food. Mother Nature has a way of cleaning her house; as much of a mess as we might have made, as fierce as she can be. She will also show us both her beauty and her kindness afterward.
And, hurricane ‘Sandy’ was no different.
