I love a good summer rain! It has been steadily raining since late this afternoon, and it is now almost 9 p.m. I have always enjoyed rain! I know that some people feel depressed when it rains, but there is just something about rain that makes me feel all "snuggly" inside! =)
When we moved to California I was 9 years old, and it was at the beginning of a drought. The normal average rainfall for the area where we lived was 10 inches per year, so it didn't rain much for the next 5 or 6 years. I really missed my rain!
Here in Michigan, the average rainfall for our area is 35 inches per year, with an average of 71 inches of snowfall! That's a lot more rain than I was used to--it's a good thing that I like rain! (And a lot more snow than I was used to--can't say that I love the snow, but there is still an element of enjoyment there.)
