“There Will Come Soft Rains” is a short story by Ray Bradbury. The story is set in the future, after a nuclear war has destroyed most of humanity. The story follows a house that is automated to take care of its inhabitants. The house is the only thing left standing in the city, and it continues to perform its duties even after the family that lived there has died. The house is eventually destroyed by a fire, but not before it has a chance to reflect on the tragedy of humanity’s destruction.
