Do you like rainy days?

It has been raining for weeks in Suzhou. Everywhere is wet. It's chilly and uncomfortable. I dislike the rainy day. Anyhow, the current weeklong rainy days can extremely relieve the drough situation where most northern cities in China are suffering. It's really a lifesaving rain to help the plant survive and grow and economically to some extent bring down the wheat price as the wheat price marked up due to the monthlong drough in northen China. Do you like rainy days?

I actually really like rainy days. I like walking around in the rain but I also love staying inside just listening to the rain. But, after an entire week of rain, it can get a bit depressing.

Hi Thungster, thanks for your reply. It's kinda romantic haha...listening to the rain. While in the rainy days, I aways feel blue and depressing and find nothing I can do. When I was a child in my hometown in the country, in summer, before a storm approaches, I can smell the special odor of the earth. It may be the so-called aroma of the earth....:) Happy Mylot!!

I love a nice rainy day where the rain comes down steady or lightly and soaks in the ground. I like to hear the rain on the roof of the house, or against the windows. When we have strong winds and rains, that I am not fond of, cause it causes flooding, and washes away soil. The more steady and lighter rains, give the land a well needed soak, and is great for the grass, flowers, and gardens. Great topic

Hi MaryLynn, thanks for your reply!! Yup, someone as you love the rainy days especially the nice rainy days, the rain comes down steady and lightly without washing away the soil. It's good for the plants and our life. We all don't like flooding that may endanger / spoil our life...Happy Mylot!!

Hi there, you are very welcome. A good rain is always nice, especially if the sun comes out after the rain. But, if it stays dreary all day it can be a boring day. Too heavy of rains at times can do a lot of damage. Mother nature can be beautiful, and can be cruel.

Thank you. Pls don't mind I add you to my friend list...:) Now pending your approval.... There's so many topics about rain. Yeah, the Mother Nature can be beautiful, and also can be cruel. We, the human being is responsible for protecting our environment from being unscrupulously destroyed as we're living in a universal community, the Earth. We should make good use of the mother nature to get benefited. ..:)

I love rainy days, they are my favorite. I have no idea why, I just love them! I never bother with an umbrella and I don't care if I get totally soaked, I never run to get out of the rain. Rain makes me happy, I guess I'm just a strange duck. I think it's great that while you do not much care for rain you are still able to see the benefits of it.

Hi AngryKittyMSV, thanks for your kind reply. It's really kinda strange that you love Rain so much. Yup, everyone has their own view while looking on a thing just like, you love rain so much but for someone, they may be not. It's sorta sophisticated. Good luck and Happy Mylotting!!

I kind of live on high ground, so that may have something to do why rain doesn't worry me. Areas around here flood, including my front yard, but my house is on a little hill and we stay dry. I'm sure the people who must suffer through the danger and damage of floods would not like the rains too much. When I was a child we had a bad flood in the lace where I grew up, and our basement filled with water, but my dad was always prepared for everything and had a sump pump so we got the water out quickly and without too much damage. So for me the flood was more of a novelty than anyone else, I am aware of how tragic floods can be for others though. I do have one small problem that is not with the rain itself but with lightning. I am not afraid of it, but it seems to be out to get me - every house I've ever lived in has been hit by lightning when I was home! And one morning recently my husband and I were woken up by ball lightning IN my house! We are all unharmed, thank God, and the damage done was minimal, but it does seem sometimes like I am doomed to get hit by lightning one day since it seems to follow me. LOL

I like rainy days. That is if I'm at home. But if I'm outside and it's rainy, I don't like myself getting wet in the rain. I often have colds after if I do get wet. I don't like having colds. _

With so much heat in summer, no wonder more people would love rainy days more. As long as not so heavy as it brings flood. In some areas rainy days is much awaited, for the farmers especially where their farms have no irrigation that they just depend on the pouring of rains. On rainy days we see green plants eveywhere, trees bloom and a cool climate for everyone. It's wonderful sleeping on rainy days. You'll love eating as well. Continuous rains, however, is annoying to some as this would affect their jobs. When heavy rains pour often there's traffic, that causes the employees to be late or erossions that block the roads enabling the people to travel or transport their goods. Slippery roads due to rains sometimes cause vehicular accidents and unwanted by some who's business needs the help of the sun. Say dried fish or drying the newly harvested palay (later to be milled into rice) So, advantageous to some while a disadvantage to others. I love moderate rains, therefore. In everything there's always an advantage and a disadvantage. We love Sunny days as well but as the song goes..."I believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows"

It all depends. If I have to go out in it not I do not like it. I hate having to get in and out of my car with the umbrella. If I home it is better because I do not have to go out in it and I can sleep all day or just plain relax.

I do like rainy days...they tend to be lazy days for me. Can't do too much outside so what else can you do...LOL! I will say if it has been raining for several days and days that would tend to be a bit overwhelming and frustrating. I am an outside person and love to be outside so being stuck inside for several days would drive me crazy.

I have to say rain must be needed but I do dislike the rainy days. Rainy makes me impatient and I easily become angry. I love sunny days. Everything will be nice under the sun. Due to consideration for the growing plant, I think I can tolerate the rainy days. Good luck!

No, i don't like rainy days either. Actually I have to take bus to go the the place where our company locates, it will be very uncomfatable and not convenient to get up on a bus when it is raining especiall heavy raining, this is the first thing i reminded when i saw the titile of this discussion. I live in a place in south China where it doesn't rain so much. Sometimes rain is need, it would be so dry if it won't rain for a long time and this situation will not good for the plants to grow. and i always hope the ranny time won't persist for such a long time when it rains.

I know we need them but I am not a big fan of rainy days. I like it when it rains at night because I tend to sleep well during the rain and even storms. I don't like being stuck in the house because of the rain so I would much rather have sunny days and rainy nights.
