I could smell the rain when I walked outside at 4:30 this morning. It wasn't raining in Shreveport-Bossier yet, but I knew it was on the way. It got me thinking about about things to do on a rainy day.

My neighborhood got a little bit of rain the night before and my plants are very happy. But on my way in to the office, I only saw very light rain. It picked up a little bit, and I hope we get even more. The experts seem to think we will.

I had some fun making a rain angel right in front of our studios today. So good to feel the rain on my face!

Here's our top 5 things to do in Shreveport-Bossier when it's raining out:

1. Watch a movie -- it's always nice to curl up and watch an old movie with the family when it's raining outside.

2. Bake -- It's comforting to have the smell of fresh baked goods in the house, especially when it's wet outside.

3. Go ATV riding -- There's nothing better for outdoor folks than a good rainfall to make for fun in the mud!

4. Go Fishing -- The fish are always biting when it's raining.

5. Take a nap -- This should probably be at the top of our list, but it's our favorite thing to do when the weather is nasty.
