It has been raining a lot lately over here. What do you normally do when it rains? Do you have any special activity that you normally do when the rainy season comes? How about sharing it with all of us here. By the way, please do not include swimming in the flood as an activity ya. That is dangerous and unhealthy as well.

Much of the year here in Ireland is a rainy season! I don't let it interfere with too much of the things I am interested in doing. I still go for walks and go out. We even have coffee at an outdoor cafe that has a canvas roof and a patio heater! At home I like to read, use the computer and watch films or television. We also play games, usually card games, and do crafts. Baking is always nice on a cold rainy day!

Yeah, it's raining in my place these days and when it is raining outside my tummy always need food thus my activity when the day is raining is eating. I will cook anything which i feel like want to eat,..and of course most of them taste salty as my tongue is salty kind of tongue. ehhehe,..swimming in flood?! bet you that most of malaysian always do this thing as i can say this thing is not happen often in malaysia...but when the rainy season comes then you will see some of places will get flooded and some kids and even adult take the chance to swim in the flood. Yes, it is not safe to swim in the flood but for those place where the flood is not that danger, i think it would be fun to do this there..

It is true that playing in the flood can be fun but the danger side of it should not be overlooked. However, my most concern would be the hygiene part of it. Flood water is always dirty.

Yes hygiene matter always pop up on our mind when the flood is coming. But for me the flood actually wash out the dirt which we have during the normal day and for the flood which is more than a a week period I can say the water is not that dirty as it was before. The water actually moves around which reduced the dirt in a particular place. But this is not too clean as most of the peoples think, so make sure always rinse our body when we get out from the flood fun.

I don't do anything special when it is raining , nothing more then I would do on any other day . I stay indoors and play on the computer or talk on the phone or just take the time to spend with my family . Or just take the time to get some cleaning done on that day . But if it is sunny out that is pretty much what I would do also .

Hi there. When it rains I prefer to stay home in front of the fire place. I enjoy watching tv and better yet reading. I think that I read way more books during winter than any other season. I hope you stay worm.

Fortunately our climate is warm enough thus we do not need a fireplace. So it is warm even when it rains here. Thanks for the comment.

I love to bake when its not so nice outside. Its something fun the whole family can do, and enjoy afterwards. Children love to help in the kitchen! Make some nice cupcakes or something!
