Yesterday i was in the pool for my evening swim when it started raining suddenly. The water in the pool was warm while the drops felt cold over the skin. It was a wonderful feeling. Being in the water neck deep and looking over the raining sky. I loved it. Though i had to come out as there were thunderstorms and as it's said, its not safe to be in water while its raining with thunders. But non the less that was a lovely feeling. Have you ever got to swim in the rains? How did you feel?

@shaynas children would really love this activity of the rain splashing in their bodies, never mind the consequences of having cough and colds.

Oh that sounds fun. I can't remember if it rained while I was in the pool. I always run indoors when there's a thunderstorm.

@shaynas Yes it is, just to be safe and sound, especially when there is lightening.

I did when we put in our own inground pool just for the fun of it. Loved it so much, I did it again on vacation in Rio.

It is OK for me to swim when it is raining. But if it rains heavily, usually we are not allowed to swim in the swimming pool any more because it may be a lightning. It can be dangerous to keep swimming outside when there is heavy rain outdoor.

I don't think that I've ever been outside swimming while it rained, but have gone in after it finished.

We have a large parasol over our fish pond. I tell people it's to stop the fish getting wet. (It's actually to keep them cool and to stop the herons seeing them)
