Ahh makes sense, thanks for posting that, I always thought that lovely rain smell was something much nicer like tree pollen being released into the atmosphere, instead its stinky ole bacteria. Still has to be one of the best smells out there.
Kia Kaha, stay strong, live long and above all have fun. :)

That's very interesting. Thanks. Interesting how supercells can pull ozone down to our level.
