    It is a mix bag if I will be honest. For example it quenches the heat of the summer day but it can also destroy things. My country for one is a storm central of the world. So in here when it rains, it pours literally.

      Where are you from, by the way? I’m from Malaysia, and lately, we’ve been getting quite a number of storms ourselves, off late.

    Try to visit our country, rainy days usually brings fear and terror to us. Our country is visited at east 20 – 30 typhoons each year. You can only imagine how much “cats and dogs” are poured.

      I’d guess that your country’s somewhere within the Ring of Fire; if it’s not volcanoes or earthquakes that pose a major threat, it’s tropical storms and hurricanes.

      Malaysia, where I’m from, is just skirting the edges of that geographical ring, but we HAVE had a tsunami hit our shores ages ago. Nasty work, that.

    I personally do not love hot weather. Rainy season is cook and so lovely for me. I always feel cool and good during this time.

    Despite living in Malaysia, I enjoy the rain a lot. The strong winds and the chilling rain make me feel much more alive than the sweltering heat of the sun.

    Of course, there have been moments when I end up getting soaked to the bone, which are slightly less enjoyable, and I wouldn’t want to be caught outside when the winds are especially fierce, and when the lightning bolts are striking random targets.

    Had a few close calls when a few bolts struck the ground about less than a few metres away from me, throughout my life.

    So I respect the sheer power of thunderstorms immensely; while I would love to harness their energy for the good of mankind, lightning and strong winds could wreck any collection structures, given enough intensity. I don’t know if anyone’s managed to harness the electricity from lightning bolts yet.

    Someday, maybe.

    Well, when rainy days happen it feels like a “bed weather” or in other words you just want to lay down in bed all day. The rainy days make you think of many things. Especially in that rainy day, you are just stuck at home and unable to go out to places you like. But nonetheless, rainy days make you want to spend time with your family.

    It’s a good question, I imagine that we all like it when it rains, but I particularly love sleeping when it rains, because it is a more pleasant and relaxed dream.
