Thank you Steve. I try to explain this to some of my friends and they just shake their heads. Oh well...

Yes, that is a ludicrous statement but we just moved from the Bay Area where there are actual seasons and cold...I got so used to the cold. I lived in the city of San Francisco for 4 years, during which I lived on the foggy side of town for 4 years. Now it's just sun sun sun...*sigh* For now I am making the most of living here but I think we are definitely going to be moving in three to four years. You know?

Absolutely. I can relate. Sometimes here in the summer we get so many sunny days with no rain, I get tired of it. However, if we have 10 days to 2 weeks without sun, I don't like that either. A little of each is a good thing IMO.

I adore summer rain. It brings refreshing coolness after heat, makes air very fresh and keeps grass from being yellow and scorched.

I love rainy days. I find extended dry sunny spells depressing.

I like it when it just pours down all day, with no wind, or when I can't hear the music because of the rain on the roof.

OMG I'm the same way I love days with heavy rain. It's just something about the atmosphere and relaxing indoors or getting outside and battling the elements. I wish that where I was at the winters were really rainy instead of really snowy. I know that in Maritime areas people get depress with this sort of weather but they also get cool summers instead of summers like on the Eastern USA.

It's not really the heavy rain that depresses some people here, but weeks of showery weather. It's like that here at times during winter, with shower after shower for 2-3 weeks. The sun would still be shining about 50% of the time though, so it's not that gloomy. It's the fungi and mold that starts growing, and mud, rats and mice, that I don't like.

I love rainy days as well, I love it when we get a SW airflow from the Gulf during the summer here, brings all-day rain with up to 8-9 thunderstorms in a single day, it's awesome. I also love those all-day steady rain with temps in the 40s, those days are nice too.

Ha ha ya I can get a bit depress with days of rain but despite this I still prefer to live in a rainforest due to all of the green. As long as there's mountains and coast line. Snow and cold depresses me way more which my location gets way too much of.

I was walking down a street the other day and noticed moss developing on the pavements.

I know Tallahassee is cold by Florida standards, but I wouldn't have thought you get days in the 40's with all day rain. That wouldn't be common here with all day rain. The day could start off in the 30's, it would mostly likely reach the 50's
