May Showers

ShowersA few hours after my arrival in Dublin, I was greeted by the local weather – seasonal rain showers.

Not lasting long, the raining, windy conditions didn’t seem to bother anyone, as most Dubliners continued on their way, doing business as usual. I, on the other hand, ducked for cover under every doorway and awning I found. (One of the items I failed to pack? An umbrella!)

I imagine these showers are the main reason the city smells so fresh. They rinse the streets, nourish the greenery, and keep the air free of pollutants.

“How I wish it rained more in Los Angeles,” I said. “Everything would be happier.”
