If it's cold, I bundle up in a quilt and read a book. If it's warm, I grab an umbrella, head outside, and wait for the snails, slugs, and/or earthworms to come out.

With me it very much depends on when it's raining which never seems to be the right day

I just love the atmosphere and wish winter was really rainy as long as there's some sun as well. For summer I want rain come down in thunderstorms.

In winter, everything looks ugly and I get depressed.

In the summer, it's more exciting and eye candy (due to its heaviness and the accompanying wind and thunder).

If it comes down as brief heavy showers, with sunshine afterwards i actually like it. If it falls as a steady drizzle all day long, i absolutely detest it. But most of the time the last option is valid for me.

If it rains once in a while, as in about once every 45 days, I'm okay with it. Anymore than that, it's outright harassment, ESPECIALLY when it's an all day drizzle. I lived in the Arizona desert for 10 years for precisely that reason, having moved from NC to AZ without a job waiting for me. I wanted that badly to not be bothered by rain anymore than absolutely necessary to simply remain alive. I loved how in southern AZ you had the monsoons--it would rain quickly, then get out, vs hanging around all day long pitter pattering around.

I've had more tolerance than that for it in recent years, but I'm back to hating it as much as when I moved from NC to AZ, after it has rained like crazy for the past 2 months to the point that it was flooding. There's no excuse for it doing that.

I love rain, so I love it when it rains unless it interferes with my running.

Unless it's accompanied with storms, I love drizzling rainy days

I checked "it is boring" if we have drizzle or light rain. I checked "I feel calm and relaxed" if we have heavy rainfall or thunderstorm. And then I checked "I don't care, when it happens" when I really don't care about weather.

Rain here is drizzle which lasts for hours or maybe a light shower. Most of the time it's boring and makes me sleepy and obviously not want to go outside.
