Today’s #bloganuary prompt asks about a smell linked to a memory

Of all my senses, my smell is probably my least developed due, at least in part, to allergies to everything that leads to a perpetually stuffed nose. It’s hard to smell that way!

So I don’t have memories linked to smell except for rain. And they’re not specific really. I just know that rain is a definite thing that I can smell (and yes, I do know the science behind that) and I associate it with nice things since we haven’t had any catastrophic flooding or hurricanes here at my inland location.

Some people say they can smell snow. I am not one of those. I do have lots of different ways to describe it, including the icy, rimey mess of a coating that fell overnight. But that’s a story for a different post.
