it's been raining in sunny singapore. and just in character with the bunch of complainers we citizens are, it's usually too hot and humid and uncomfortable. now that it's rainy, we complain about the cold and inconvenience. actually, personally i like the air temperature now. it's optimal and so cooling. however, the dreary grey to fish belly white skies are depressing and makes me not want to walk out for lunch. how about you? does rainy weather affect your mood?

I am just back from lunch. The weather is so cool and nice that I feel reluctant to come back. lol. On the contrary, gloomy skies and rainy days makes my days. I don't feel moody when it is office hours. If it is a public holiday or when I need to go out, then it is a different story. I do not like walking in the rain. Neither do I like carrying an umbrella.

If you do not like walking in the rain nor carrying an umbrella, then there's only one result when u need to go out in the rain - get soaked!

I love rainy days.Especially during the summer. The rain takes the pollen out of the air in my area. And it usually is cool after the rain.Rainy days are the best for watching movies at home.And when it comes to thunder storms , I find them awesome, I love to watch them, as long as I am indoors.

The opposite for me actually. The sound of the rain calms me. I find the sound very peaceful. I love the way the grass and trees look after the rain and the occasional rainbow is awesome as well. Rainy days do make me feel a little tired sometimes but that could also be because I find it so relaxing. :)

Yes, especially when it is especially dark. One cannot really help but feel gloomy when the rainy time is here. Although there is one advantage for us who live in tropical countries that is at least the heat would at least relent to the cold. But then again, it is still a little depressing. So when the day is particularly gloomy because of the rains, I would choose bright colored clothes to at least perk me up. And I think this trick does help. When I am wearing a bright colored blouse, I would immediately think of summer which immediately brightens my day.

Well ive knowticed when its raining im usually very tired i dont know why I use to think it was lack of sleep but once I got over 10 hours of sleep and I was still tired I dont know why when it rains I just feel like taking a nap but of course if I have work then I have no choice so that makes me pretty moody which dampens my mood which isnt good.

Sometimes it does. I prefer to stay indoors and just mope about watching tv, online or just doing absolutely nothing. Sometimes I do like sitting on the porch and just watching the rain fall LOL and looking at those getting wet. Other times my son and i like to put our raincoats on and splash around in the puddles, thats heaps of fun. During the summer it is actually nice when it rains as it cools the place down.

No, it doesn't really affect my mood unless it really interfers with something I had planned or want to do. I like to hear thundar and watch lightning. Of course I currently live in a high desert part of the US, so rain is almost always welcome.
