I wake up on this beautiful Thursday morning to the overwhelming smell of a fresh rain.  I look over the valley and see an extraordinary show of light.  The snow is almost glowing it is so white, the green is so vibrant and the freshly budding trees paint the landscape with an array of colors.  I take in one more deep breath as I prepare to start my day.  My drive to work I can not stop thinking about how this refreshing rain, along with the melting snow is going to produce the most vibrant colors.
