It has been raining exessiley for last few days. every day i have to go to office by my car. i have a old car that is Hyundai. but the interior of the car is good. i always want to feel labish inside my car. when it is raining outside i just go out with my car to feel the rain. i stop the ignition in a lonely place where i can feel the sound of rain clearly. trust me the song of rain is unveliable. by the song of rain i try to remember the sweet memories of my life. i enjoy the quite environment with the sound of heavy rainfall. just feel it. do you feel the same way ?

I can accept it when the rain is not too heavy, but when it is so heavy that I don't like. It is quite dangerous to drive in the rain, what's more with my limited visions and slippery road. I always avoid to go out driving when it is raining, especially on the highway where there's a lot of 'Formula One drivers'. It is also hard to see the cars in front and behind you.

I do look at them sometimes because they can form or resemble something but I don't really fancy them that much. Wow, you must be a romantic and softhearted guy because you like such things...

ivan, you just reminded me of some of my favotite childhood memories, but they have nothing to do with cars. Sixty years ago my aunt would take me and my older brother on a train gire to our great aunt's country home. They were fantastic days, especially listening to the rain at night on the corregated iron roof. Thanks mate for rekindling such fond memories.

Ya ! I love it the same way but on a bike. No matter how heavily its raining, I love to drive at the maximum speed. I love speed but at the same time I am careful too. I slow down when some traffic is there.

thats cool, i do ride byke. but not in the rain, some time when the rain falls in the time of riding byke i just wear my helmate and slow down the speed. it is very dangerous that when it rains every one seems to be in rush. and the roads are always slepary.

it really depends on the car . Because if you have an old one, you`ll not be delighted at all. So, with my father`s car, a Ford Focus (2008) it`s really a pleasure , because on the road it`s the same thing as when it`s dry .. but maybe it`s a little problem when it`s raining exessiley because you can`t see so well .. and so , you must drive carefully.

I hate driving anymore period. I get a nervous wreck when driving in the rain. I hate it. You cannot see where you are going alot of times and there is a glare on the road at night.

i agree with you so much. i also love rain even though i cant drive. you sit in the car with some light music, outside, it's rainning cats and dogs, it's really a great thing for me, i can calm down and listen to the song from the rain, from my heart....it's really a good way to relax.

Hi Ivan, Though I love rain so much..I don't really like to drive on a rainy day. It could be the bad experience I had while driving on a rainy day. I'll get very nervous when the day starts to pour out of blue while I'm driving. Apart from that, I love to dance and play in the rain. I can't sit inside the house when I see heavy rain..I love the chills I get when I'm soaking wet.

It depends on the amount of rainfall and the time of day. If it is just a light rain then it does not bother me. But if it is coming down so hard that I have the wipers on as high as they will go and I am still having trouble seeing because the rain is coming down so quickly and so hard then, no I don't like driving in it at all. Also, if it is during the day I do not have as much trouble seeing during the rain as I do at night. So, does that answer your question enough? :)

I have to admit that I absolutely hate driving in the rain, because I have the worst fear of hydroplaning, because my brother did it a few years ago and has never been the same physically and mentally, so it sucks. I really do enjoy the sound and feel of rain though, it's very enjoyable and relaxing.

I like to drive in rain, it makes the inside of the car feel cool and refreshing, and the sound of rain is very calm and relaxing to me. I always enjoy it when I am on the freeway and I drive on a puddle, I like the calm environment on the freeway when it rains.

rain has always been something i like. sitting by the window at home reading a good book, and coffee. perfect. but outside when i have mud/water in my shoes, its not perfect. now driving in the rain, i mostly just keep thinking what if the car breaks down, what if i get stuck in the rain. Because this has happened before, my part of town has small floods once in a while. and once i had to get to school and the car got stuck in the middle of the road. so if it a good car, i guess rain would be nice, till then i shall try to avoid it.

I love rain whether it is a just a drizzle, a regular rain, hard rain or even a stormy rain. I don't like floods or landslides though. I like driving when it's raining. The splashes look cool and fascinating. The earth also seems refreshed. The canopies of the trees seem greener and happier. The sound of the rain is also therapeutic. You are correct. Everything around just seems serene.

I think it is quite fun to be on the road when it is raining, it is quite dangerous but it is fun to see the rain drop on the screen especilla ywhen the rain drops are very big.

I like rain, but I don't necessarily like to drive in it. Light rain is okay. Heavy rain...not so much. I had a bad experience where I hydroplaned off of the road. Had I been just a little bit further down the street I would have crashed into a building. Thankfully I didn't. Since then I have avoided driving in the rain. It is nice to listen to, though.
