I live in a very rainy part of North America — a veritable rainforest in the Pacific Northwest. We whine and complain about the grey, downcast rainy days that incorrigably hamper us from September to June. I personally dislike driving in rain — it’s slippery and hard to see especially at night, and crazy people drive like the roads aren’t slick. Maniacs.
I SECRETLY LIKE RAIN
Yet despite all the negatives about rain…I have to say that I do like the rain most of the time. For one, the Pacific Northwest is lush and green with gorgeous fauna and flora because of the rain(forest). Two, I get to wear my Hunter wellies. Three, I like the smell of rain while walking around outdoors. Four, it’s nice on Sunday mornings when you can laze about and curl up all cozy, and not feel guilty about staying inside all day. Five, I enjoy running in the rain — it’s cooling and I don’t even mind being splashed by puddles.
And six, I like the sound of the rain bouncing off the windows and the roof, with their rhythmic pitter-patter. On those days when it isn’t raining (mostly summer), I like to listen to the rain at RAINY MOOD. I listen to the rainy soundtrack as background when I’m reading.
Apparently, listening to the rain helps you sleep better and relax. Now, what I don’t quite understand is why the website says, “Add gentle rain to your environment” when you can hear thunder and lightening in the background and the rain is pouring down like a torrential storm. Ha!
