Hong Kong rain video wrestles a touch of romance into our wet weather

Missing the rain today? Thought so!

While we wait for it to come back… any minute now… you can get your fix with this rather beautiful video featuring Hong Kong’s most common weather condition – apart from cloud and heat, of course.

Shot by Raffaele Mosca who was, “Killing some time while hiding from a thunderstorm in Causeway Bay” recently, the sleepy and serene short shows neon signs blurred by the downpour, locals sheltering in doorways, and those ever-nostalgic misted up noodle shop windows we’ve all come to love.

Props for your wet weather productivity, Mosca. We normally just send out a couple of “Wow, it’s raining!” tweets.
