    Enjoying the Rain

    Hey CNET!

    Do you enjoy when it rains? Springtime’s about and it’s starting to rain more in my area. It’s been hot so it already feels like summer but it’s very welcomed after last winter.

    When it rains, it gives you a reason to stay inside. When it’s nice out, there’s a feeling of guilt that I’m not outside enjoying it. When it rains, the skies darken and the smell hits your nostrils.. to me, it’s a great feeling.

    Hi Cory,

    I love when it rains, but I prefer the sun. I especially like afternoon thunderstorms that build up all day and then it downpours. I love the humidity that comes along with it since I live in a semi-arid climate. It can be a little humid here, but its rarely oppressive. If anything its too dry, so the rain is welcomed. Rain means the mountains stay green and are harder to burn. My favorite days are when it rains hard at night and you wake up the next morning to clear skies. Its so relaxing to sleep with the window slightly open when you can hear the sound of rain. Fortunately my window is protected by an overhang so the rain has a tough time getting in.

    I also agree that I feel guilty when it's sunny and I'm not outside. We only have good weather here for a few months and our warm season feels like a blink of an eye. It feels like I'm taking the good weather for granted if I go inside.

    Thanks for the post!

    Hey Cory!

    Yes! I love the rain. My allergies are never bad when it rains and my skin is in a good state because the air isn't too dry. I also love the sound of rain!

    Have a good one!

    Hey Cory,

    I only really enjoy it when it downpours or thunderstorms. The streets clear up and all of a sudden there's an unspoken bond between everyone experiencing the chaos. But once you make it inside if you aren't already, the sound on the roof and windows can be one of the most soothing things.

    Hi, I love the sound of rain at night, when you are lying in bed and listening to the peaceful sound; but I also like the sound of a storm when the wind and rain are howling. Too much and it wears on you, but every once in a while, when the rain is warm it is fun to go dance in and be silly.

    The only time I don't like the rain is if it spoils some plans I had of going outside, or if it comes down so hard that it gives us a power outage. However, I generally do like it when it rains, especially if there's been some hot days. I just feel like the earth really enjoys it and everything cools off, plus I know that it benefits the wild animals, who I often pity for having to stick out the heat and try to help them to cool off by keeping the bird baths filled with water so they can have something to drink and bathe in. I also like the rain because it fills the bird baths for me, which is great because that's less of my water I'm using and it always fills up the bird baths to the brim, so that's a bonus.

    Hey Cory,

    I definitely prefer the sunshine, but I welcome the rain sometimes, too!

    This week where I live, we're supposed to get rain all week. I'm actually looking forward to it. It's going to allow me to stay home and get some work done. I work for myself, and when it's nice all the time I always want to go outside and play! I'm also welcoming the rain this week because I just planted my garden so it will be good for the plants as well.

    Thanks for the forum!

    I love the rain. I think it's pretty and relaxing. I also love that in cleans stuff allows the trees and grass to grow. My area in the past week has become very green and I absolutely love it!


    Re: Enjoying the Rain


    I don't really get the people who love the rain. Sure, if you're in a city, indoors, and you're looking at the rain it can be great, but usually it just makes things muddy, gloomy and sad.

    I always prefer the sunshine. Whether at the beach, in the city, in the woods or just down a street. I just feel better when it's sunny out.

    I also hate when it gets all grey out; the clouds cover the sun and all you get is this hanging mist. It just makes me feel pointless for some reason.

    I really enjoy the rain. I was looking forward to seeing rain this week but hasn’t rained yet. It calms me down and i feel less stressed.
