I'm with subject2change--I like a change when it's been too much of one thing. It also depends on the season--I love crisp sunny days in the fall and spring, and rainy days in the summer or spring. I love the occasional rainy day at school b/c I feel like I may as well concentrate on school--can't do anything outside. The days I like least are the hot humid hazy/sunny days b/c they really do a number on my eyes--I think the humidity and haze capture the light like millions of little mirrors and reflect them back and that's why it's so hard to keep my eyes open outside.

i love overcast weather. makes it easier to work and even stay at the office longer. i especially love an overcast day like in early October when you can smell people's fireplaces burning outside. makes it more worthwhile staying indoors. overcast days do have more character and are more memorable. i remember the fall of 1972 (when i was only 10) was loaded with overcast days i actually remember election day of that year (Nixon/McGovern) was an overcast day

I certainly don't consider rainy, cloudy days as dreary at all. They're life-giving in more ways than one.....I am happier by far on cloudy days than I am in the bright-ass rays of the sun.....which can **** off for all I care
