Week 8

This week, I commented on three blogs, Chantal from Canada, Annie from Australia, and Skylar from the United States.

The first blog I commented on was Chantal’s post about maple syrup.  I said, “Hi Chantal,
I found your information on maple syrup very interesting. I too love it, but at times I find it to be too sweet so I only have it on occasion. I’ve heard of it on breakfast foods, but never used as a candy. How often would you say you have it?

The next blog I went to was Annie’s post about Vegemite scrolls. I said, “Hi Annie, I’ve heard of Vegemite before, but never Vegemite scrolls. They sound and look interesting!

I enjoyed your post about cheeseburgers, and I do like them as well.

Magnificent Rain

The gorgeous water droplets that occasionally fall from the sky, known by many as rain, are one of the most fascinating and beautiful things in nature. These breathtaking nature acts occur when water from lakes and rivers is evaporated by the sun to form clouds, another pleasing part of nature, which drop the droplets when pulled down by gravity when the clouds become heavy enough. Not only are these astonishing to watch, the recycled water the rain provides is essential to life. Without water, a vital thing for all living things whether they be humans, animals, or plants, it is necessary for anything to continue to live. From this, rain shows it’s not only amazing but has extremely important purposes as well.

Besides being important for our life, the rain is a magnificent event to watch as well. As the gorgeous rain drops fall from the clouds, it is mesmerizing no matter which way it is seen. Whether it be straight up in the actual rain getting soaked from the heavy downpour, or experiencing the beautiful and amazing sense by just listening and looking at the splattered rain drops all across the windows in a house, it can be exhilarating or just soothing. The crisp smell of fresh rain refreshes and calms all those experiencing the soothing aroma. Even though the sun is typically buried beneath the clouds, the pleasant sounds, smells, and looks seems much more appealing and comforting compared to a hot, average day.

Lastly, even with the beautiful event itself, the outcomes can arguably be even more exciting. Most significantly, after many gorgeous rainfalls there can typically be a rainbow as a result. These breathtaking, somewhat rare occurrences are magnificent to watch after a long, beautiful rainfall. Not only is the pouring of rain soothing and comforting as well as fun and exciting, it also provides the stunning view of a marvelous rainbow. The fascinating view brings light and happiness from the mixture of sunlight and rain. From the astonishing views of the rain before or after, it is clearly an alluring part of nature that can just be admired or seen as a sign of comfort.

Finally, rain is not only amazing to watch or feel the cool droplets run across your skin, but it has purposes as well. While there is much more to how it is formed and what it does, many can agree that it relaxes and can be comforting as well. From the important part it has in keeping people alive it is also one of the most intriguing sights in nature and a wonderful chilling sense that almost anyone can pick out. Anywhere from the good or just fun and beauty it brings, rain is one of the most interesting parts of nature to witness.
