Smell of rain

Don't you love the smell of the dampness caused by rain? I do, but there are times the smell is awful which caused by some chemical reaction that we would always get near a construction site or worse a drain. This is what I generally get in a poor remote area or a place where there’s some development.
The only time I could smell that was when I was living at the government quarters which was like donkey years ago. The place was surrounded by vegetation, trees, mud and some would say 'nature'. Faced out balcony was a paddy field where my mother worked on for her office research. Gated properly which was done by my father as a part of his project before he left into the privatized world. Those were one of my happy moments which I can’t return.
