Rain or shine?

I was complaining about the summer heat here,where some experienced heat stroke .just now it's raining again.Now I summarize which one is much better if we have only two choises summer heat or rain fall? Based on my experience.If it's summer.I can easily dry clothes.In the morning I can walk going to church well except in the mid afternoon as we need to bring umbrella.We can also cook using dried woods upstairs and grill.Kids can play outside as what I see.The bad things is of course heat stroke is prone if you are dehydrated especially to those who have hypertension.Our electricity arises also during summer season as the appliances easily get heat.and we often use electricfan.More consumption of water coz plants need water everyday. While during rainy season as I feel that summer season is about to end.The advantages of it. It is best time to be at home and have a good sleep for the weather is cold. no need to water the plants.no heatstroke.and electricity gets lower we only consume less water. The disadvantages first as we experienced is the thunder.Some people was accidentally heat by thunder.When it rains the leptospirosis or the deadly disease from rat's pee the goes with flood is prone.When it rains you are force to use transportation.for you cannot commute for either you will get wet especially when it is flood y or your shoes if you are wearing will be damages.Beside of that more mosquito during this time especially when there is stagnant water .You need to use dryer to make the clothes dry or it will take 2 to 3 days before it will dry.There are always a headline news with family who live near the lake who evacuate when the water rising due to continue rain. and while others have been died due to that. Landslide also is one of the tragic experience that happen during rainy season I haven't yet remember that there is no affected families due to heavy rain.Many person died during rainy season compared to summer season.Cold,flue, cough is very common during this time.Dengue fever too arises.And people who go home after work especially when the rains come with wind.you cannot avoid get wet resulting to palsy.I remember before When we was living in subic, and after work sometimes there is flood and the tricycle can no longer have a ride there because it is deep up to my thigh sometimes that even I am tired I have to walk in the mid of the flood to gohome.and I got big veins in my feet because of that especially water is cold it is scary too sometimes there is snake running over water. Even here families near us who leave near the bridge evacuate too. and some good smaritan give relief goods to them as their living is affected too. so if you have 2 choices only which will you prefer rainy or shiny?

I have to admit that I like both. I don't like extreme heat. If it is in the 80's then that is hot enough for me. I love to watch the rain and if it isn't too cold out and the rain isn't coming down real hard I will go for a walk. We get some pretty good rains here and once in awhile a tornado.
