Long-awaited rain

After the past few days’ heat, finally it rained today. It was the kind of summer rain that appears all of a sudden, with heavy raindrops, flushing the heat away.
Finally we could take a long walk with my dog in the nearby park afterwards.

I love the smell of rain. It smells like a new beginning.
