How do you feel on a rainy day?
Does rain make you sad and depressed or do you see it as a sign of life and rebirth? Do you hate to have to get out in the rain or do you embrace it? Does it calm you or make you agitated?
Rain is awesome. I love to go and go on lonely roads. Yes off course, sometimes I became sad when I remember my affection with the rain.
It really depends on what day of the week it is, how many days it's been since it last rained, the prospects for the next sunny day, if I had outdoor plans for (that day), and whom I'd be spending the day with.
I'd prefer not having to go out in the rain and fight the traffic.
A rainy day on a weekend day can be romantic warmly snuggled up, eating, and watching old movies by the fireplace with your significant other. The contrast between the rain outdoors and the warmth and dryness indoors makes one feel appreciative for having a home.
It depends.....if it's been rainy for days on end it agitates me. If we've had a streak of nice weather, then I welcome a rainy day. In the summer I especially like them when I have a lot of things I want to get done in the house because then I don't feel guilty about not being outside.
On the other hand, when I don't have a lot to do and it's rainy out I love to light candles and just do something that relaxes me.
I love the rain, and the smell of it, when it mixes with earth. I feel like the earth has been cleansed, and refreshed after a good rain
Rain are the tears of God blessing the world. Cleansing and irrigating the earth. I appreciate it, I welcome it and embrace it with tremendous joy. The alternative is the desert. lol
It's interesting to see that so many people actually like rain and rainy days and that you even embrace it @Sri T. I even like to walk in the rain (if it's not storming).
If it was God's tears it would be extra special, however back to reality, it's not his tears just H2O
Rain always lightens my mood. It's also a psychological phenomenon that the human emotion/mood is sometimes directly related to the weather condition. For example, the people living in dry regions would often be more agitated and angry, while the people in rainy regions are ought to be more calm and cool. I'll always welcome rainy days, but wouldn't want it to happen everyday!
I like rain, better than sun, i love the cool breeze wind, lift up my mood
A rainy day makes me feel great.
I recently relocated to Portland, Oregon, after living in San Jose, California for 35 years.
It defies logic, I suppose, but uninterrupted dry days under relentlessly cloudless skies is oppressive. On rainy days here, I don't feel guilty about reading the newspaper or a good book inside. I like the sound of the rainfall on the roof. There's no push to go outside at all. I don't have to shield my eyes much here (I had cataracts by age 50 down there) or seek the shady side of the street on walks. It is necessary here to make backup plans in case of rain, which reminds people that we are not in charge of everything. Freeways are bordered by greenbelts, not dried up fields where litter, alone, blossoms.
Rain would be a blessing in California now, not for the beauty it creates, but for a desperate, thirsty population whose numbers and habits have exceeded nature's ability to sustain it.
I guess the only downside to a rainy day is: no golf.
aharris it seems like Portland is perfect for you I like how you mention that the rain keeps you flexible in scheduling things--we definitely are not in as much control as we think. And true, our water resources are being depleted.
I live and go to school in LA. I too would like to see some rain no matter where I am, whatever I'm doing, it would be great if it rained
The sound of rain falling on the ground is the most calming thing for me.
Many lookt a rainy day as a negative...I on the other hand see it as an opportunity to do things I don't do on a regular basis..such as cleaning out closets, rearranging and decluttering.! also catching up on Computer work....
So rainy days to me are just as important as sunny days...although to be truth full ..I get more done on rainy days...Sunny ones are spent by the pool..
thought to be an interesting question..thx

How do you feel when it rains all day? Do you get depressed or do you like it?It makes me feel sluggish, like I just don't want to do anything.

I love the rain. The world seems to come to a stand still and everything is so quiet and peaceful. I love walking in the rain because it gives me time to think, enjoy the outdoors alone and I love how the rain comforts my soul.

Rainy days or Sunny days- Which do you like most?During sunny days, I do so many things outside. Attending to my daily duty, exercising outdoors, visiting friends.. During rainy days, the relaxing feeling of not doing anything outside and the idea of attempting to read a book also excites me....

Do your family ever make you feel guilty about the life path you chose?In 2007, at the age of 31, I left my home in England and moved to Texas, USA, and got married. Since that day, my parents and one sibling have subtly made me feel tremendous guilt for 'leaving' them, and will often ask why...
