The Song Remembers When Challenge- I Love A Rainy Night

For anyone actually reading these song posts, I'm sorry that this one is late! We had quite the storm last night and we lost internet connection! I had planned on writing about another song but this one came to mind so I thought I'd go with it instead! I found this song playing in my head, trying to find comfort in a much loved song, while the storm raged outside our trailer.... I have always loved rainy days, they tend to make me feel creative and want to break out some crayons and a good coloring book. I can even remember coloring on the floor of my grandparents' living room on a rainy day back in 1986 when the Challenger exploded....

Last night, however, was not the most enjoyable rain storm I've ever experienced. As far as storms go, it wasn't that bad. Sitting in a metal trailer with thunder and lightening all around and the intense noise from the rain was not the comfortable experience I am used to and the girls were up well passed midnight trying to ignore the flashing of the storm thru the windows....

I must say tho, remembering this song did help get me to sleep...I was only two when it came out so I can pretty much say it's been one of my favorite sons for almost my entire life! Its an oldie but a goodie!

When this song came out I was in my first year or two of college! I like rainy nights, too, just not a fan of wind and lots of lightening! My hubby is an emergency amateur radio responder, so when we get a big storm, he's on the radio and computer and I am huddling somewhere with my wine! (:
