In December, students in Chino Hills High School had been getting a pretty hefty amount of rainfall. Many of those said students have expressed some discontent with the gloomy weather. Grievances such as getting wet, feeling down, not being able to go outside, and just in general feeling a little ‘under the weather’ if you will, have been the most common. However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say, and I honestly believe that the rain has been great both aesthetically and environmentally. To start off, the rain itself just seems to put me in a good mood, unlike a lot of people. Here in California, all we ever get to usually see is the constant sun, so having a darker setting and cooler air is quite refreshing after months of egregious heat. Along with the rain itself, we have been having some of the most beautiful mornings we have ever gotten. The large grey clouds clash against the vibrant hues of orange, violet, and yellow of the sunrise, creating the most surreal environment I have ever been in. Not only that but one morning many students talked energetically about a full rainbow! If I haven’t convinced you that our rain is a dream come true, then I might be able to win you over with some science. Californians have had to deal with an extensive drought ever since 2011, which has caused many issues, including the death of crops and water loss. The website Drought.gov shows that about 93% of Californians face the effects of the drought. With such a major drought, any kind of precipitation is quite needed within the state. So, in hindsight, if the rain makes you feel down in the blues you might want to reconsider. It can teach you to find pleasantry in the most unlikely of places. And there is plenty of beauty in our rain when it does fall. So, as you go throughout your days and things seem to all be dreadful and dreary, try to look for those small bright nooks and crannies. Not every day has to keep being a bad day!
