I'm including an excerpt from The Cross and The Rainbow:
From page p 14,
Living in Florida we are blessed with rain most days, during the rainy season that is. I love sitting inside watching the storm develop. First the clouds, then the wind and finally the rain. The air has a unique smell, sweetness. My Grandfather used to tell me, "there's rain coming, do you smell it?" At first I shook my head, my little five-year-old brain thinking he was making that up, but later knew exactly the "smell" he was referring to.
I heard someone say one day, "I wish it would stop raining, I hate storms." I was surprised. I thought everyone loved a storm. From the lightning bolts flashing across the darkened sky, to the palm trees swaying, and finally the rain pelting the window pane.
Just as quickly as it brewed, it was over. But was it really over? I looked across the sky and say it. The Rainbow...
Genesis 9:13 I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth...
