Fuck a bunch of sunshine. If I never saw the sun again, I would be happy.

I like rain, but it makes my commute go from 25 minutes to almost an hour. Pretty crappy way to start a day.

Yeah I love the smell when it's raining, but it's really annoying when you are already out and then it starts :/

Rain is much better than sunshine.

I love waking up to cloudy or dark skies, the smell of rain in the air the soft drips of water on the roof. Not to mention rainy weather is the best kind of weather to curl up and relax in or read a book.

Sunshine is just like...default. There is nothing all that interesting about it just be light outside.

In fact the only thing better than rainy days are stormy ones or snowy ones.

Rain sucks. That constant wetness becomes oppressive.

Sunlight exposure improves your mood. Sunny days are conducive to outdoor activities.

Sunny days are the best. The Sun is Life.

I love the sun for the 3-4 months we basically have the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the warmth on my face. It is quite a social thing as well. Meeting up with friends/family on the beach is infinitely better than sitting at home in a confined space with your sweater on.

Unless I have my gaming period. Then I just want a perpetual rainstorm for days on end.

I also appreciate the rain, especially when it hits in a certain area of a house that makes the droplets give a low "thud" noise. I have one spot like that in my house and it's very inconveniently placed in my parent's bathroom, so I can't always listen to it =_=

But I'm always intrigued by people calling sun showers "fox's wedding"



So mysterious...

I absolutely love rain, it's my favourite weather. I enjoy running when it's raining, the feel of the water hitting your skin is so great.

Definitely agree with you, OP. People look at me like I'm a psycho when I say I don't like the summer. Though I'm not necessarily a big fan of rain, I'd much rather have that than 30+ degrees Celsius. As for my perfect weather that's 16 degrees, which as chance would have it, is today! :D

My bedroom walls are painted blue and the curtains are blue as well, albeit a different shade.

When light enters the room through the curtains it's almost like I'm sleeping deep in the ocean. Now when it starts to rain the sound makes it even more relaxing. Whenever I wake up with that combination in effect I just feel like going back to sleep lol.

In general though I prefer sunshine.

As a born and raised Californian I say clear sunny days > rainy days.

I work outside so I don't like the rain. Being wet all day fucking sucks.

I do like it, every once in a while, when it rains when I'm not working.

Fuck snow though, I could never live in a place where it snowed regularly.

Rain loses.

Most of what you described has to do with being inside and experiencing the rain. That's irrelevant. You're inside.

Afraid of getting wet?

I'll get flamed for this, but I don't like Rain for the simple fact that I don't find it exciting and I hate to get wet by heavy rain.

Just few days ago during my family vacation in Belgium, there was a heavy rain during our little trip in Knokke. My clothes got wet. Hell, my fucking socks got wet.


So yeah, I hate rains. They're annoying as far as I'm concerned.

Rain ruins the beach. Rain is for depressed people that like to mope around alone. That's just what I associate it with.

That is so very close minded. Of coure don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want rain everyday, but at least 2-3 out of 7 days of the week :)

i love rain. Today it's often raining (right now as well) and I also saw a double rainbow. Can't remember if I've seen that before. 2 rainbows next to each other (although the outer one was very shallow). Great.

Love the sound, love the feeling of rain. But don't love wet clothes :)

But nothing beats summertime and the ocean.

Yes, and not the sunshower kind, which only serves to make everything more humid, and then it feels like 110F heat. Tropical weather is annoying sometimes.

And maybe I've just been in Seattle in off periods, but it really doesn't rain that much there. Or at the very least, it's often not what I would consider rain at all, coming from South Florida. Cold misty showers are not the same as the skies opening up and dumping a waterfall everywhere within a 50 mile radius.

This was only cemented when a group of Seattle coworkers came down for once, and we had one of those. They were like "I FELT LIKE NOAH OUT THERE WTF".

OT: I love the rain. I'll miss it if I move.
