    Rain appreciation thread



    How many of you are in love with the rain? It soothes me and gives me energy at the same time. Add some thunder in the mix and I can't wait to get outside.

    I'm looking forward to the summer after 5 months of sub-zero temperatures (sub-32F) and snow all around. To get through this tough period, I experimented with taking a bath and having a cool shower at the same time - the results were quite true to life. I also purchased an hour-long binaural recording of rain I like to often listen to.

    For me there's still couple of months to go before the "real thing". How about you?

    I thought I was the only one! I LOVE the rain. I would pick a thunderstorm over a hot sunny day any day. It is relaxing and helps me sleep. My perfect day is lying in bed on a Saturday morning next to the open window, watching and listening to the rain . I have it on my ipod and listen to it throughout the weeks.

    It is currently raining here. I love the rain, but you get tired of it when it rains 5/7 days of the week 18/24 hours of the day. I love snow more, I can have a hell of a lot more fun in snow.

    I come from Wales, and last time I was there, it didn't stop drisseling/raining *in the valleys*.
    Loved it, and I miss it now I'm back home.

    Absolutely love it. The sound and scent of it is soothing, and thunderstorms are music to my ears. Love it when it pours heavily down for long periods of time. Also big fan of huge snowflakes that slowly and calmly fall to the ground.

    I love a good thunderstorm if I'm safe inside and relaxing, great for meditation.

    Outside in the crap, is another story

    But rain is awesome!

    And moved to fun stuff, where I think we can let the appreciation threads flourish, as long as they don't get out of hand.

    I have a love hate relationship with rain.

    Thunderstorms, sunshowers, and freak downpours I love to death.

    Long dreary maritime rain days that last for well... days with dismal grey skies and constant medium rain and cold. Hate. HATE HATE HATE.

    Then there's freezing rain in the winter which turns pretty snow to ice and mush. That's rock bottom.

    that smell, is unique to the desert. if you go to say ohio and it rains, it does not have that wonderful smell. only we desert folk get that joy.

    I love rain,fog and cool cloudy weather. Sometimes I'm thinking about moving to some place that has such type of weather often. Still cringe remembering last summer, when it was 35-40 Celsius and sunshine for 2.5 months where I live.

    You have read my mind. Living in Vancouver for a few years made me despise rain that lasts longer than a couple hours.
