How lovely, I know I did a discussion about weather yesterday, but I just have to say that I enjoyed walking in the rain this morning. I put on my leopard print wellies  (Wellington boots) grabbed my big umbrella and off I went on a stroll, it was so relaxing! I could see people driving by me gawking, wondering why I am walking along in pouring rain, I just grinned at them, like so . Would you go for a stroll in pouring rain, or do you think it is strictly car weather too? Image : Pixabay

I like walking in the rain if it's summer rain. In the autumn it's very unpleasant.

This is summer rain, but when I got home, my hands were blue, I can't believe it is only 17C today for summer.

i would be concerned only if you had no umbrella and was soaking wet, but you're dressed for the part so i'd pass you by. but i would definitely notice and smile at your leopard print wellington boots. as soon as i read your title, this old song came to mind: neil sedaka's laughter in the rain

Funny, I never associated that song with that hit you mentioned until I heard it. You are good!

Lol. I am happy you'd appreciate my leopard print Wellington boots. Oh, Yes, such a lovely song, I haven't heard it in years! Though they didn't have an umbrella, he puts a beautiful slant on that walk.

@LadyDuck , we should have about 16 or 17C at night by now, it is supposed to be Summer, 8C at night is way below the norm.

I have strolled in the pouring rain when our pup Molly was younger. Hard to hold the umbrella and leash at the same time. Rather glad Molly has given up walking in the rain now that she is getting older.

I used to love strolling in the rain. Back when I was in grade school, my home was not too far. But it's possible to take the public commute too. When it rained, I preferred walking as I liked the coolness of the weather and the rain itself. I liked using my umbrella too! And I made that as a very good excuse to walk when in truth I didn't have enough money for the public commute.

On a hot summers day it can be nice, but an umbrella is a necessity. I wonder why public commute is so expensive, I think it should be free.

@bluesa It's not expensive here. It's really cheap. But back in the 80s when I was in grade school, my mother didn't give us money for public commute.

@toniganzon that's why I think public commute should be free, parents here struggle to get their children to school.

I just did that several times in the last few days. The rain was either spitting or not too significant for me to use an umbrella. I have a short bob, so it is always easy.

I love playing in the rain! It reminds me of my carefree days of childhood! And because it rains so often here in Florida, I get caught out in the rain more than I can count! I don't mind the cold raindrops hitting my body, especially in our warm climate!

I like to sit on my front porch in the summertime when there is a rainstorm. Love to hear it fall on the tin roof. The smell of the rain is cleansing too.

Most people in our small city when the rain pours are using their small or huge umbrellas. People enjoy walking in the rain.
