I think the children alone enjoy rains at the most.The immediate joy in a child's face is suffice.We,the adults,just look for a safe place where we will not be wet by the rain.This,is on the road.In the houses,we run for the clothes just left outside for drying or close the windows to avoid rain spoiling the house.The ice cream man has his own worries,etc.With all the responsibilities ,I think we fail to see rain as rain itself and to enjoy it.Have you ever liked to bath in the rain as a child would,despite what other people will think?

hi srganesh, my dear friend, i love rains. thats the season which i enjoy a lot. i love rains in winters too. sometimes its like that i feel i am a bit stuck up because of rain , that too in winters but in summers i have no problem . i never have to give a second thought that i should go out if its raining or not.i even love snow. i love to be in snow fall, i love to walk in snow, i love to make snowmaqn, with carrots, mufflers, and cap. i love that time too. i love to have ice cream, softry with big scoops in winters. i feel i enjoy ice creams in winters more than in summers, yes, in summers there is a feel of coldness when you eat that but i love in wintrs. i love to go out walking when its drizzling. i love to go on for a drive when its raining, but not storming. i love the feel of water on my face.

I usually enjoy the rain, except for when it's raining really hard and I have to work in it. It's a pain in the butt to deliver pizzas out in a downpour.

Bathing in the rain is actually childish, any audlt will feel funny having to hang out in the rain all by themselve when they actually have an alternative to avoiding the rain.

When i was a kid i really like to play in the rain with my cousin. Those memories are hard to forget, the droplet of water that slowly touches your face when you held you head up high is like a theraphy for me. How about you my fellow lotters what are your experiences during rainy days share some I know you want to share your experiences with us

Personally, I Love the smell of Rain. I also Love to sit and watch it from a window and Love to see the pretty colors of a Rainbow that comes afterwards from the rain as well. Rain for the most part does not really bother me compared to Snow and Cold. Since I live in the Seattle, WA USA area we here are quite used to rain so a lot of the yr. you just get prepared and have your umbrella close by for the just in case as well.

i Enjoy the rain, am 19 yrs.. old and i still LOVE to go in the rain and play in it. Sometimes when its pouring down a little i stand there just thinking random thoughts enjoying nature. It is rather relaxing to just stand there and be. I also loved to play in the rain when i was a child, that was my favorite pastime. When the water started pouring i started to

I still love the rain! It is very relaxing and hypnotic. If it was a warm rain we kids would go to the local field and play touch football. We end up hydro-planing all over the field and no one got hurt. I still like walking in the rain!

I enjoy rain, I used to bath in rain with my Dad, brother,and sister when I was a kid. Now, being in Chennai, one of the cities of India I am little afrain of rain because three days of continuous rain will cause flood in our area. I wasted two days of leave two weeks back because of flood. So, now I am afrain of rain too... but I still remember my nice rainy days during childhood in my viallage and love rain.

I Love the rain. I can smell it just before it starts raining. It is such a wonderful nourishing wetness. I really Love it. The thing I do not like about rain is when I am at a craft show and it starts to rain, OMG it is the worse thing in the world. The rush to get the clothing in out of the rain. If the wind is blowing it is insane. Believe me in 39 years of selling at craft shows I have been caught out in the rain in the worse way. I have gone home drenched to the bone. I have had my clothing plastered to me from the rain. I have never had any clothing get ruined but I have had to wash a few things. One thing, it is always so good to get everything packed up and out of the rain and on my way home.

I just love the rain. Especially when it's hot. A nice little sun shower does the trick. Used to really love it when I was a child. We'd (my sibs and myself) would walk to school in the rain. Run through the puddles and get our feet, socks and shoes (if we were lucky enough to have any) wet. Absolutely loving every minute. Now running in the rain reminds me of my younger, childish days. Great memories.

I enjoy rain when I am inside ,probably with my better half all snuggly and listening to the pitter patter of raindrops on the rooftops.Also you must have food on a day like that.

I STILL like to play in the rain and run around with my kids. They have a blast and I enjoy seeing the joy on their faces...plus, it's cleaner than mud!!

I love the rain. Loads of people around me get immediately grumpy as soon as it starts raining, but personally I'd just rather go out and run around, just to feel the rain lash against my face. It's just so indescribably pleasant :)

Generally I enjoy rain. But I hate too much of rain. What most concern me is when its a rainy season in my country, it rains too much. Way too much. Then it becomes difficult to go out for work, market etc.. That is what I don't like about rain. But when it rains normally I love it and I love to watch it as well. I was a fan of rain when I was a kid and use to enjoy it a lot. Because, at those times I don't have works and when it rains, it will be holiday for schools. But now, I dislike too much of rain.

I like the rain because of the calming effects of the sound. I am able to sleep easier when it rains. I also like the damp air but without humidity.
