    No one ever said blogs are quality-controlled

    If you browse through the archives, you'll find that, from time to time, Tim and I appear to be on the same wavelength. I was just about to post Wordsmith's A Word A Day, but Tim beat me to the post.

    Well, my friends, you're going to hear about it again anyway: Petrichor.

    Like Tim, I never knew there was a word for the "pleasant smell that accompanies the first rain after a dry spell."

    There is such a word.
    It's nice to know "petrichor."
    Please stop raining now.
