If you anywhere near or between Bastrop, TX and basically Galveston, its no secret that there are some pretty bad wildfires happening due to the drought that we’re experiencing. I’ve known of at least one person who has had to evacuate because of this, I’ve had to bow out of covering one event because of reported ash in nearby Cypress. The Wild Heart resides in Houston, which is basically in between Bastrop and Galveston. Even worse, it has been spreading because George Bush Park caught fire twice this week apparently.

However, today I heard something I have not heard in about a month and if so, very scantly. Also, we have had water rationing which is a BAD thing.

But today I heard something outside my window today: rain!!!

So I thought it would be pretty cool to present to you the 10 best songs about rain (or storms)

  1. Here Comes the Rain Again by the Eurythmics. Oftentimes in Houston, it likes to rain during the winter months – making it dreary.
  2. Outside the Rain by Stevie Nicks. Houston, we have been “outside the rain” for much too long!
  3. Fire and Rain by James Taylor and Carole King. We have seen too much of the former – least those living on the outskirts of town.
  4. Rainy Days and Mondays by the Carpenters. Anyone ever notice that without rain, crime escalates? We need rain!

And lastly how could I not include Mr. Gene Kelly?! It would be a sacrilege if I didn’t!
