Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde

A delightful little animation that will make you look at rain storms just a bit differently.

In celebration of the rain’s return, a wonderful little short by Zheng Yawen.
I grew up here in Seattle and, like many of my fellow damp and mildewed citizens, I tend to get kind of squirrely if we go a couple weeks without even a drizzle. We are the “Rain City” after all.
Through yesterday Seattle had been adding to the record for the longest dry(ish) stretch in recorded weather history. Over 82 days we collected a mere 3/100ths of an inch (0.03″) of measurable rain. Until last night. Finally.
Welcome back, rain, I missed you!
