Do train whistles and rain make you sad, nostalgic, lonely, or what?
I'm feeling something as I listen to them both but not sure what. Just curious what sort of emotions they usually evoke.
In some ways the sound of a train going by makes me feel nostalgic, but that could be because I rode a train as a child and they were so close to where I lived. I always felt I was telling someone goodbye.
Train whistles give me nostalgic feelings, as I associate them with train trips I have taken and places where I've lived where train whistles were an every day and night experience. How rain makes me feel depends on the circumstances, such as if I am outdoors or indoors, whether the roof leaks, whether it a gentle rainfall or a thunder storm, and so on. Thunder storms are exciting. Gentle rains, watched through a window, are typically soothing.
Or a train whistle might bring to mind Hank Williams senior singing, "Did you ever hear a whipporwill? It sounds too blue to fly. The midnight train is whining low. I'm so lonesome I could cry."
Train whistles always remind me of my Granddaddy, who worked for the Clinchfield Railroad for many years. So they are nicely nostalgic for me. And I generally like the sound of rain falling; it is soothing.
Hearing train whistles and the other sounds they make remind me of my childhood. I grew up a few blocks from the rail yards and could hear the whistles, screeches, and cars banging together as they were moved from one train to another. Those were the sounds of summer.
The sound of rain makes me feel at peace. Since I can't do anything outside when it's raining, it gives me a chance (and a good excuse) to slow down and relax for the day.

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.
