Rainy Morning

We are finally getting some much deserved rain. It's actually coming down pretty hard right now. It's supposed to rain all day today and then our temps are supposed to drop to the 70's. Our temps have been in the 90's, almost 100, with high humidity. I can't wait for it to cool off a bit so that I can go out and walk some since I can't walk when it is too hot. I know I am probably a bit weird but I love the rain. I could just sit and watch it all day. It relaxes and comforts me. Does anyone else like rain like I do?

That's pretty much how it has been in Illinois as well. There was a nice drop in temperature last night as the front began to move through, and currently I can hear the rain outside my bedroom window. We're due for a high today of around 82 instead of mid-90's, and it is supposed to cool off more as the weekend approaches.

It has already started to cool off here and they say by Friday at night it will be down in the 40's which I am not looking forward to.

Yes, I love listening to the rain but my favorite, which we rarely get, is a light rain that lasts for a day .... we usually get those fast and furious rains.

@crazyhorseladycx Yep, sideways is a great way to describe it thing is when listening to the thudding of those big ole drops it's not quite as calming

I also love the rain Simone. I bet it is so nice there right now. I wish it would rain more here. I loved the rain in England and miss it much.

We had rain last afternoon. I do not mind it, but this house (my old one) has always had a leaky roof that I could not repair, so I got to where I disliked it. Things are changing, though. I will be able to enjoy it again.

Gerty I hope the rain is not coming through your ceiling into the house. Hoping you will be able to enjoy the rain sometime again.

I can understand why you won't like the rain. It's not fun at all to have to watch for leaks.

I do not dislike the rain too. Our temperature has dropped, the mornings are fresh now, during the day we are around 68 F, that is a very nice temperature.

Yes, I like the rain too, but we are so dry here in oregon. We haveen't had any substantial rain for five months, and the grass is brown. We are on a water ban here, so we can't water like we would like to, but then I don't usually anyway, as I know it will green right up when it starts raining in the fall, and then it rains and rains, and we get enitrely to much.

It was like that when I lived in Las Vegas. We rarely got rain at all during the year and then monsoon season would hit and it would flood.

@simone10 We get a lot of rain in the fall, and I mean a lot. More than we need, as once it starts, it rains for days, without stopping. It isn't light rain either. We never can have a happy medium where we get rain in the summer, and hardly any in the fall.

woohoo! doin' the happy dance fer ya! its been runnin' hot in these parts 's well 'n humidity aint our norm - sure don't miss that schtuff on a regular basis! so glad that yer gonna start venturin' out 'n takin' those walks. so much beauty to see 'n i'm almost green with envy o'er the thought 'f ya watchin' those leaves change... i love those slow mountain showers, the sound they make on rooftops, watchin' the droplets trail down leaves 'til they reach the ground. aint too fond 'f the heavy downpours 'n major schtuff though, lol. big

I like a slow and steady rain. It won't be long now until all these trees around us will start turning colors and I'm hoping to get some good pictures.

I love the rain also and i enjoy watching it curled up to a good book. Unfortunately whenever it rains i am stuck at work. Were supposed to get rain later this afternoon then it's supposed to drop to 70's rest of the week as well and I can't wait.

I like curling up with a good book too. We are only supposed to have a couple of days in the 70's then back to the 80's. I don't mind the 80's if the humidity is low.

Hi Simone! We need rain here desperately, and are due for some tonight and tomorrow. Can't come soon enough, if only to chase this awful heat away!

I agree that rain isn't fun at all if you have to get out and drive or walk in it.
