Oh, to be a raindrop

Oh, to be a raindrop. To travel as it gets to travel. To see what it gets to see. To play in the water. To fly. To float on the breeze.

Why just dream of it? Create it! Let us follow those lucky water droplets on their journey. It is a rainy day in Washington State. But it won’t stay there for long. This cloud seems to be on the move. The winds are taking it across the country. From sea to shining sea.

Pathmap

Here is the highlighted path the rain drop is predicted to take. But following storms on a map or the weather channel is nothing new to us humans. Traveling the way a raindrop travels, now that is something exciting. So, let us follow a single raindrop on its journey. It may not stay with us long here in America. And, who knows where it has been before! What natural wonders has it seen? What countries? Where does it want to travel? While it is here in America what will it see as it travels across our beautiful country? I guess the best way to see what it has seen is following that raindrop on Pinterest.

See what our water droplet friend sees as it travels from state to state. Washington State and all it’s glory! Then, through the in-coast states. Idaho,Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, (a little South Dakota) Iowa (a little Minnesota), Wisconsin, The great lakes, Michigan, Ohio, ( a little Pennsylvania) West Virginia, Virginia and then back to the ocean in good ol’ North Carolina.

Man what a journey! The great wonders of America. The things this raindrop has seen are mind boggling. So much beauty from coast to coast! It has flown over some states. It rained down on the cities of many. Whisked the earth in morning dew. Covered the mountaintops white. Flowed through the rivers and rested in the lakes. But, nothing seems to be like play in the ocean. Being a small part of something so great, vast and powerful! As this water droplet’s journey across the United States ends in has built up into a great store. All the other water that has joined it’s journey along the way is darkening the skies of the North Carolina Coast. A great storm is forming. A beautiful song and dance of water that is so excited to return to the ocean.

As the storm comes to an end a new journey begins. The raindrop now gets to spend time playing in the ocean tossing and turning. It gets to be a part of the greatest masterpiece. A small part of beautiful waves. Playing with the fish. And holding hands with surfers as they paddle out. ng in the ocean. Being a small part of something so great, vast and powerful! As this water droplet’s journey across the United States ends in has built up into a great store. All the other water that has joined it’s journey along the way is darkening the skies of the North

The journey never ends!
