It's Fun Playing in the Rain


Yesterday afternoon,
 I saw an overwhelming joy in his face 
when he finally felt 
the rain dropped over his head.

Due to climate change, our weather seems to be more unpredictable. We experience extreme heat nowadays and occasional rain showers at the same time...

The sky may be bright blue in the morning but suddenly it turns cloudy in the afternoon then heavy rain falls.

GREAT time to have fun under the tearful sky...

The first rainfall of May is said to be the start of the the rainy season but the weather is expected to be more sun than clouds for the next few weeks.

There were two separate heavy rainfalls during the week. I just allowed Kiko to play under the rain yesterday with his Papa. I was reluctant to let him join the kids in the neighborhood during the first rain shower because I believed it's dirty rain yet so, he just watched them from our window.

Dirty rain may mean acid rain or the product of the reaction of rain with nitrous oxide (NOx). Researches show that emission coming form motor vehicles are the biggest contributor to NOx in the atmosphere that's why the first 3 or more rain falls after a long time can be harmful.

  1. I'm glad that your child is not afraid of the rain. Some of my younger cousins cry when they are touched by rain. :D

  2. My childhood memories about playing in the rain is almost associated with cloud seeding. There was an extreme dry season back in the late 1980's and I remember the oldies talking about cloud seeding whenever there's rain during that time.

    It's a different story now. We have a lot of rain but there's the risk of dirty rain as what you've mentioned in your post.

  7. nice! our last month also back in singapore was pouring rain!! One of my friend told me to let my daughter and the other kids in the condo play in the rain that day as they will enjoy it and will remember when they part ways and so she is very right.

  12. Super hot day and rain paid it off. Seeing Kiko playing with the rain I remember my younger days wherein if it rains I rush outside and climb in my tree house and there I stay playing with the rain while shouting. Hahahaha...

  18. My husband and I loved to play in the rain as kids - so we are definitely going to allow our son to enjoy that pleasure when he gets a little older. We have less fear of acid rain here in the province :)
