Do you like it when it rains?

From where I am now, it's raining hard outside. I don't like it when it rains this hard, it's difficult to travel and commute because some streets would be flooded and I'd get soaked even when walking with an umbrella. I also don't like it when it rains and I'm not in the comforts of my home. How about you, what do you feel when it rains?

Rain is indeed a welcome respite, if the weather is hot or warm almost throughout the year. Thanks for the comment. :)

It is nice to hear that it is rainy season in your place. I love rains. I like to cover my whole body in blanket and sleep till afternoon on rainy days. Sometimes I take leave on rainy days to sleep. I also love bathing in rain.

Rain would be fine if I were snuggled up at home. But when you're at work like me, probably not. Haha!

I love rainy season and i would love to play street and beach cricket along with my friends during the rainy season. I still fondly remember my college days where I used to play play cricket in the college ground whenever it rains heavily and i am missing those good olden days where we were free to do anything and no responsibilities tied our fingers. We were the King and prince of anything. I wish those golden days come back in some stages of my life.

I get annoyed when it starts raining when I'm out in the open. Fortunately, I'm always equipped with an umbrella as the possibility of drizzle is quite high at any time. When I'm in my flat, I feel really relaxed and chilled when it is raining outside, knowing there is a perfectly good excuse to stay in and enjoy whatever pleasure there might be on TV, computer or books or study that may be required.

It's good that you always bring an umbrella with you. At least you're ready when the rain pours. Thanks for responding!

i don't really like rain as well as i don't like to get wet and i always get sick if i get soaked in the rain... but i know that it is necessary especially for the farmers... otherwise, they won't be able to grow their crops and we won't have any food to eat... take care and have a nice day...

Yeah, we need rain to grow crops for food. Thanks for joining, and take care not to get drenched in the rain so you won't get sick next time. :)

Hello there moon child, It looks like we aren't alike. To some people, the rain is gloomy or sad but to me, the rain has a sense of peace, the rain harmonizes or combines the skies and the earth. When I was a little boy, I used to go outside and bathe in the rain, I always enjoyed it! If I felt like it I would go grab my bike go on top of the hill and just go down the hill real fast while the rain went down, to my parents, it seemed dangerous, but it was an amazing feeling. With the rain going down, the air was cold and breezy it was really nice. Now that I'm a teenager, I still enjoy the rain. When it rains I just go to my living room which has windows in two sides of it, open the windows up and just lay down there and rest my eyes, its really relaxing hearing the raindrops falling, hitting the roof, flowing down and hitting the Earth. It relaxes me a lot and rejuvenates me as well it also keeps me thinking of certain events that have happened in my life that has made it amazing or that has made it gloomy. In short, I enjoy the rain. Thank you for your time! and thank you as well for posting this discussion!

That's an interesting side you pointed out. And I agree, the cool air the rain brings is really relaxing, especially when the weather's been hot for weeks. Thanks for joining in the discussion. :)

When I was still in school I always wished that we had storms everyday. __

When I was still studying, that was what we looked forward to also. But it's a bummer when you're already in school and they suspend classes because of heavy rains. It's hard to go home and wade through the flooded streets. :)

Hi. When I am at home and it is raining, I feel really good because it becomes cold and the environment makes me want to just relax, even sleep. It makes me calm down and just think nothing. A good way to relax I must say. But when I am outside, traveling, I hate it when it's raining because it is very difficult specially if it's raining hard. Sometimes it floods and causes traffic.

Yeah, rain makes me sleepy. That's why I don't like it when it rains and I'm not at home. I might fall asleep at work. Haha! Thanks for responding.

I could not help but respond to this because, like you, I don't like rainy days in general, but most especially when it is raining so hard, like now! Rainy days are very gloomy--Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down. I also don't like getting my feet wet and muddy. Another thing, it is so difficult to dry the laundry in this kind of weather and not have them end up with a "kulob" odor. It is different when it is raining so hard and you are at home and are able to snuggle up to a loved one (there is another Pinoy song about this, too). Bottomline is, I am simply not the "Singing-in-the-Rain" type. =)

I agree, the only time I like rain is when I'm snuggled up with my hubby. Haha! Thanks for the response.

the weather is so hot at this moment that even if i don't like rains, i would wish the rains to come with some respite. i like rains to some extent. driving in the rains during the afternoon is fun but i am scared of driving in the rains at night.

Yeah, probably when the rain isn't pouring hard, it's fine by me. And yes, we should be careful driving when it's raining -- slippery roads ahead. :)

I don't like heavy rains especially rains that are too heavy that streets become flooded. It is very hard to commute and my feet always get soaked and dirty which I hate. But if it is just a light shower of rain, I love it. When there is only light rain, the air becomes cooler. I still go out and walk in the streets if there is only light rain.

yes kinda hard to have a rainy season, because of those wet wet roads, places you admire that you cant play run and run,, and things we all done as if i were you. but others like rainy because it not hot air roaring your body that makes you feel bad.. but like others they want those rainy season to make love.

I hate driving in the rain because the windshield wipers never work good enough. I hate when it rains really hard when I am trying to drive because then its really hard to see to drive as well as the windows usually fog up and then I either have to turn cold air on to defrost them or warm air and then I sweat from the heat lol. I just cant win with that. I like the rain because its neccessary to give us water to drive. I love when it rains at night then I don't have to water the flowers and plants that are outside. If it rains at night then it doesnt ruin a nice day since I am sleeping anyway. I hate going out in the rain even just to run to the mailbox. It makes my body feel so gross. My 5 year old daughter loves the rain she always wants me to let her go out in play in it. When I was young I remember my sister and I going out to play in the rain all the time. I am always worried about lightning so I havent let my children do it yet. Sometime when its warm out and I know for sure that there isnt a storm then I should let them play out in the rain and experience how fun it can be!

I don't mind a nice quiet rain, but I am not too fond of storms, especially at night. I actually enjoy watching the rain if it is a slow and steady rain. I will sit on my front porch and just watch the rain fall. If it is a storm at night, however; I will lieterally cover my head and curl up under my blankets!

I love the rain but not when it is so harsh that flooding occurs because then it hurts people. I actually love the rain normally but not like you described. When it is that bad, I worry about people I care about and my family. Thankfully, where I live, we don't have that sort of rain often.

Yes I like when it rain. I think the rain washes away the bad things and makes it fresher outside. I like to sit and watch TV or read. I do not like it though if it does rain so hard that I can not goes out but a nice gentle rain good.

I love rain but not heavy rain. Things i love to do when it rains? sleeping, watching the falling rain. When the day is too hot and in the afternoon or at night rains, i feel good and at last it is not too hot.

To be honest, I prefer when it rains. Right now where I live it is boiling and I have to waste money on drinks to stop myself from dehydrating. At least when it rains it feels nice when it touches you and you can stay indoors :)
