The drizzle, and then the rain. My sneakers didn't hold up well, but then, I should of worn my hiking boots. They are made for the damp earth and muddy puddles, and slippery rocks and all the wonderful things that signal the warmer weather. But, today was chilly and damp, but I could still smell the scent of life in the air. There is no mistaking that delicious smell, even if its accompanied by a sneeze or two.
