A front blew in last night, bringing a nice, heavy rain and some wind. Nothing too crazy, and Vlad and I knew it was coming (thanks, iPhone!).

Despite a few minutes of frantic hatch closing and cleaning up all the water I had stupidly allowed in, I still absolutely LOVE the sound of the rain on the boat. Take a listen in this video:
