Rainy Days Aren’t Gloomy

I don’t feel rainy days are particularly gloomy.

Sure, the sky is colorless.  The air will be damp and cold.

But is the grass ever greener than after a rain shower?

The trees and grass take on a vibrant, bright hue.  Suddenly the patches of vegetation between houses and streets looks like minature gardens.  Rain makes the sidewalks and houses themselves a darker, more intense color, which perfectly offsets the violently green-green of plant life.

And rain is the perfect weather for bright, clean plastic rain boots and rain coats.  And a crowded street with umbrellas is an art museum coming outside.
