I can't stand the rain...














I am not keen on winter rain.

It is like a sharp knife that cuts through conversation.

It makes us walk faster. We do not have time to stand and chat.
"Hello!" seems the only word hastily spoken.


No, I do not like winter rain.
It soaks into our heart and dampens our spirits.

I come from sun-drenched climes and winter rain is like an antidote to my Mediterranean spirit.

Give me warm rain anyday!

I love the rain whether warm or cold!
(Though I prefer it if I'm dressed for it)

Its really hard to get other people to like it too.

Jim will not go out for walks in the rain with me :-(

Oh and you might still have a Mediterranean Spirit but you've picked up the British habit of talking about the weather!

Caro, you are right you have to be dressed for it.
But I really believe people enjoy rain if they are not working... There's nothing like a walk in the rain in the Lake District...That's the only time I like rain!

I love when we have a light shower in the summer, especially if it's been a really hot day. My most romantic memory is kissing in the rain. Rain in the winter is a different story. I agree, Cream. It's just nasty and gives everyone a bit of the blues.

Love the picture.

Penny, kissing in the rain...What didn't I think of that?
That's it, scrap this post! I love rain of any kind, even acid rain!

yer so funny! rat's whole life is about the walk, rain or shine. Oddly enough it does rain in Calif.(Unlike the song says) and it has been raining lately. I don't mind the rain it's the damp and mud i dislike. When you live in the woods, the mud is the problem. I hate mud in my house! love the illo. p.s. i am pleased to be your friend.
