Three days of rain.
That is what we are having here in the DC-area right now.
How do you like rain?
Do you hate it?
Do you love it?
Do you tolerate it?
I like it. I have zero problems with rain (except when a deep depression of low pressure lingers over Scandinavia for weeks in the summertime).
Other than the low-pressure-Scandinavia-thing, I like rain a lot.
Rain is good for nature.
Without rain, nothing would look lush and beautiful.
Rain is good for the soul.
A rainy day can be very relaxing. It can be serene. Like bliss.
I like hearing the sound of rain on the pavement, I like hearing it on the roof, or when it hits the windows.
Summer rain. Spring rain.
Two beautiful words in the English language. They are beautiful in Swedish, as well: Sommarregn, vårregn.
Yesterday it had started raining in the morning.
I was debating whether to take my PW, or not.
I took my PW. In the rain.
I listened to a Swedish radio show (Mannheimer och Tengby) during the walk, I photographed some along the way (PRAISING the iPhone, like I have a hundred times before. I love it).
And, I really took in nature.
I was almost alone on the paths.
Me, the iPhone, the rain and the nature.
I did not get that wet either.
But, I admit that I was freezing a bit once I got home again.
Alas, after several big mugs of hot tea I felt better.
But, it was lovely.
I really do think I appreciate all kinds of weather. I love me a sunny day (Who does not!?), I love cloudy days (good for my soul).
I love a big ass thunderstorm (as long as I know that I am safe and sound). I like dramatic weather in general, again, as long as we are SAFE and taken care of. However, I can live without strong winds. I can also live without strong heat and humidity (but since I live in the DC-area it is part of the summer, so there is NO escape from THAT kind of weather. WELL, AC of course, but you know what I mean).
Strong wind, with even stronger wind-gusts, again. They don’t make me happy. Not when I am on the ground, not when I am driving, and especially NOT when I am flying or if I am on a boat. And, another thing is that I have such a hard time sleeping during a very windy night.
Other than strong winds I am up for any kind of weather.
How about you?
What is your favorite weather?
