Understanding Rain

by William Bossen Photography

For three days the rain has fallen.  I never really understood the term “rain falling in sheets”, but now I certainly do.  Last night we took a ride on a rented scooter to the town Thong Sala on the Island of Koh Phangon in Thailand, in the most tremendous rain I have ever experienced.  The quilts of rain falling from the low tropical clouds with such force and velocity as to cause physical pain.  Like going through an automated car wash where the quickly rotating bristles are the rain and the jets are the wind. – Will
