Rainy weather

Rainy weather
Rainy weather is just great if you are going to be cozy and safe at home. Just sitting there with a cup of coffee and watching the rain patter against the window is simply awesome and so relaxing. If you need to go out you can always carry an umbrella and exercise extra caution while driving. Obviously the problem lies if it is raining torrentially as floods will follow and there will be other problems too – in the fields, possible damages in roads and cars, and sometimes even houses. But all in all I love rainy weather, as long as I do not have an outdoor activity on the day!

Pros
For those who love rainy weather the rain is just great, for many it is pleasurable to stay indoors, and for others it is even pleasurable to go dancing in the rain just for the fun of it! More supply of water. Natural irrigation.

Cons
Flooding and related problems, Driving can be a problem and skidding is more possible, Cannot carry out outdoor activities normally, Problems in fields when too much rain falls.

I hate sun burn.

I prefer rainy weather where the clouds block out the sun all day long because I burn pretty easily :D

I can probably burn in the shade so having the clouds block out the sun may not help lol.

A rainy day is always better for me because I can crack a window to listen to the rain and sit on the couch with my girls and watch a movie at the same time.

The smell of rain is pure bliss to me lol. I love how it smells while it's raining and right after it's done. I also like the smell of fresh cut grass and gasoline, so I may be the odd one out here :D

Razzy, the smell of rain is a great smell! I agree that there is nothing better than a soft rain, sitting and relaxing, enjoying the fresh air!

Better for staying inside

I can be lazy inside and not feel guilty about it. On a sunny day if I'm cooped up inside i think "I"m not out there enjoying the beauty" If it's raining i can watch a movie in my PJs and it's very cozy and i feel no guilt about it

Rain is the best!

Rain is beautiful! I love sitting by my window looking outside the dark cloudy and the rain drops coming down onto my window. I just love that thought! I love the sound of rain! I especially love when it rains in the morning!

The Sun is very annoying! It can cause various types of skin cancer such as: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Not only does it cause skin cancer but it also causes burns. This doesn't mean I hate sunny weather! It's just because the sun can be dangerous but I also love being tan so there's one the thing I like about Sunny Weather and also another thing is that you will be able to go to the pools, beach and etc. I just prefer rainy weather more.

Rain

I used to hate the rain, and I cannot stand going out when it is raining as I worry about not being able to arrive safely, and most of the streets are flooded etc. However lately summers are being way too hot, and it is unbearable. You just have to stay at home with a fan in front of you for a good part of the day or else just accept the fact that you are going to sweat profusely all the time, and I just cannot stand that. So I am voting for rainy weather, as long as it is not excessive, with torrential rain.

Getting washed over getting burnt? Washed, obvious

I really REALLY cannot stand the sun. My favourite weather is rainy and stormy but when the weather is clear I prefer to go out after sunset. When I can't do otherwise and have to walk outside during the day, I always walk in the shade. When I go to the beach I always wear a cap and when I'm done swimming, I dry up as quickly as I can and hurry to the shade of my car. On the other hand, nothing beats a hot cuppa behind closed windows while looking outside and hearing the gently pattering of the rain.

I love sleeping when it rains

There is nothing better then sleeping when it rains. Being cozy under the covers in a comfy bed is the best. And hearing the rain is so relaxing for me. I love a good rain shower!

Yes, sleeping when it rains is a great experience! It really is quite relaxing, especially when you are feeling lazy on these days.

Rain All The Way

I love the rain too, don't really know what it is about a heavy downpour that I like so much. I really enjoy cooler weather much more than I enjoy a hot, dry day, and listening to the sound of rain is quite calming. But even better than just rain to me is a good thunderstorm. I like just looking outside and seeing a nice show in the sky and listening to thunder. My dog may disagree though, but the sun is bad news for me and I burn easily so I will take rain any given day.

Rain!

I will go for the rainy weather. There's just something soothing and relaxing when it comes to rain. I could just lay in my bed, look out the window and stare at it for hours.

I don't mind the sun but I hate getting sunburnt and I dislike the heat a lot.

Rainy weather

There's nothing better than a rainy day, right now we have this cold and breezy days where you can go outside with a sweater and don't feel stressed because you're sweating. It's the best for me because I have a delicate skin and the sun damages it very easily, so I need to use sun protector whenever I go out of my house.

When it rains

Actually I love to go out when it's raining, it feels so refreshing with the wind and rain hitting my face along with the cold weather, in the Philippines most people do go out when it's raining wearing raincoats or wind breakers and jackets or simply by bringing along an umbrella. Besides when it's summer here people doesn't go out much because it's so hot, you'll get sunburned .

Hate heat

I really hate having to deal with hot weather especially when the sun is too bright and hurts the skin too much. I love walking in the rain and enjoying the weather indoors.

Sunny weather

Sunny weather
Sunny weather enables you to go out and do whatever you want to do to a certain extent. However with the sun’s harmful rays we are becoming more aware of the need to be cautious at what times we go outdoors, as well as the need to apply sun cream, wear a hat etc. Sunny weather makes you want to go for a picnic or to the beach, but ultimately we still need to be cautious as too much sun can be harmful. Sometimes it is too hot to stay too long and with sweating and breathlessness you prefer to go back home in an air-conditioned environment.

Pros
Pleasant and warm, Outdoor activities can be carried out as much as you like.

Cons
Sometimes it is way too hot, You need to make sure you do not end up with sunburn and in some countries summer is too hot for one's health, Sunscreen and hats, as well as sunglasses end up being a must.

Sunny!

Rain is great on occasion but you can't do anything and causes a general depressing mood. Sun allows you to go outside, be happy, wear less clothes and have fun.

Sun is great

I love a good sunny day. As long as it is not 100 degrees out, then the sun suits me fine. I would much prefer a day that is sunny, which a slight breeze. Anything below 80 is ideal for me.

Sun all the way

I am a huge fan of sunny weather. I like to be outside on days when the sun is shining and it is not too hot to be out there. I would say that 70 degrees on a sunny day is perfect for me.

Bring on Summer!

I'll be honest here, I have changed teams big time since I had kids.

I used to be able to lie in bed all weekend, sleeping or watching movies when the weather was cold.... you know hibernate like a bear?

Now I have kids. They are up crazy early in the mornings in winter, it is dark and it is cold. They climb into my bed with their cold little pressing against me and pull the blankets off me laughing like mad.

They tell me to get up in the cold and make them breakfast... and they strip all their clothes off and run around bare foot.

They get frustrated being cooped up inside and keep trying to escape into the cold.

Then they get sick, which is just the worst.

In summer it is light and warm early, they can run around nude all day. We can ride bicycles and got to the beach... oh and the washing dries in less than an hour!

Yes I am now a summer person thank you.

How can you not love the sun, there is nothing more relaxing in my humble opinion than lying in the sun and reading a lovely book. You can top up your san, come back golden brown and show off your body, this all being said I can see how those who do not like their bodies or sun burn easily could not like the sun. But I am not here to vote for anyone else apart from myself and I really do love the sun, I find it a real emotional uplifter. When the sun comes out I instantly feel much happier for some reason.

This serves me better

This is when the beauty of nature is actually reveled with beauty. As the sun shines you just feel happy not for any reason but for the beauty of everywhere, you feel free of the fear of the night. Also this is actually you can work, you can hang out, visit places, go to the beach, swim, farm, and all others. The sun helps even to harness energy, it makes the day go perfectly. Look for example, when the day was rainy we all say, this is a bad day just because it was not sunny. So I see it that the sun really makes the day happy because it brings light to the day.

California Native!

I've lived in Southern California my whole life, and one of the reasons I love it is it's perfect weather. It's always sunny and beautiful here and I can't imagine living anywhere else! I've visited other rainier places like Seattle, and although I can see the appeal of being able to wear cozy warm clothes and enjoying cooler weather, it can get really dreary after a while. It's just too cold and wet and uncomfortable for a California native like me!

Sunny weather brightens my day

I don't feel good whenever I would wake up to see the rains. Wherever I am, whether at home or in a hotel or even in a beach resort, the rains always dampen my spirits. With the sunshine, I love to wake up to see a bright day. It is as if giving me the energy to rise and to proceed to my activities for the day. As the song in Annie goes, tomorrow bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun. And that applies to me because I usually sing that during the rainy season when the days are gloomy with the continual rains. But in fairness to the rain, we are saved from the work of irrigating our garden and I know that the plants and trees are jubilant when the rain pours. But I wish that the pouring of the rain will not be excessive as to bring floods.

Sun

Having rain every now and then is fine, but I prefer sunny weather. I like going outside when it's warm and sunny. When it's rainy, it's damp and cold and you're bound to get wet. Plus, I go to school by bicycle and it's a pain in the butt to ride in the rain. Raining can also cause serious disasters such as typhoons or flooding.

I feel like people are generally in a better mood when it's sunny.

Man, this was a tricky question. I do love the sunny weather and I love the summers when the nights are being brighter and all that.. However, I'm super-allergic against pollen so I have to eat a lot of medicine and take asthma medicine more or less every day during the summer, so, even though I truly love the summer, I also hate it. A lot. More than anything actually. Rainy weather on the other hand, is often very nice. It's cozy to lie in bed with my girlfriend and to watch some movies or whatever. Just to be there and hear the rain outside of the windows.. It's cozy, nice and I love those days. When I have enough free time to just relax that is, which isn't too often.. Well, it'll be a tie. 50/50. :)

I agree that is a trick to pick! I love them both. I would not want to live in a climate that was only sunny and would not want to live where it only rained. I love a good summer day that is sunny and breezy, as long as it is not too hot. But the rain is also soothing as well. Nothing better then sleeping in on a weekend when it is raining. Or cuddling up on the couch with my love, watching old horror movies and binging on popcorn!

Yes cuddling is great when it is rainy. Just today it rained and I cuddled up on my bed with two cats. Oh, how relaxing it was to hear the rain and listen to them purr. This is what makes life great.

In as much as the rain has been helpful both to plants, soil, environment, and keeping the air moist which serves a very important aspect of live but i also stops or disturbs most human activities and renders it either slow or to a stop, but I accept it is needed but for me better at night because this is when I enjoy it, especially the wind it comes with, which makes the night lovely and helps give a sweet sleep. For the day, the sun rules because it handles everything well and in the right other, though it has its own disadvantages like when it is too much it makes everywhere and everyone uncomfortable and restless but the advantages seems far far better and more compared to its disadvantages to in conclusion I will say though both are good and necessary but the rain should be for the night and the sun for the day for everything to go smoothly and fine.

I do not think you can choose a preferred climate. I like rain and cold, but when it's raining it's hard to leave the house, so I also like the sunny days. For me the ideal climate would be not too hot and with some periods of rain.

It does not rain often in Southern California, so when it does rain - it is definitely nice. If it rained often or everyday, it would be quite depressing. I prefer sunny weathers and it makes my mood much better too!

I like sunny weather but only when it's not too hot outside. I don't like the heat and when the sun burns my skin. Rain is alright in small amounts and preferably when it's warm. In that kind of rain, I don't have to worry about getting sick if I forget an umbrella.

I am in love with the rainy season for it gives us the chance to fetch rain water and reduce the stress of going to wells to find water. Also, rainy season is a period of planting and harvest which is a source of food production. So, I would always want to go with rainy season instead of the sunny weather any time any day.

I live on a farm. I live in hot climate. I need rain for my plants, I need rain to lower the temperature. When the sun is shining, the daytime temperature can go up to 42 degree Celsius in my place. Therefore, I don't like sunny weather.

I do love both of them. What I love about the sunny weather is you can take a vacation on the beach together with your problem without a problem and you can enjoy doing lots of stuff when it's on a nice sunny day. What I do also love about rainy days is the coldness it brings to me because I hate getting sweat because of the heating temperature. I enjoy sleeping well when the weather is cold. It's okay to feel the heat for as long as you're on the beach, swimming but if you're just at home, doing nothing on a sunny day, makes me irritated because of the sweat.

We live in a tropical country where the beach resorts are great with mountain resorts also getting popular. But you cannot enjoy those places if it is raining. And worse, the rains dampen my spirit that I feel lazy and somewhat sad. During the Christmas season, it was raining once in a while that the festivities were ruined. But as the song goes, you cannot have sunshine everyday so you just have to try to live with the rains once in while.

I love a sunny weather wherever I find myself,it never easy working and walking through the rains,it really messes up things for people,one can't get to work early and keeping of appointment becomes a hassle of rain but with sunny weather all tasks, appointments and jobs can be accomplished in no time.it really a great time to go swimming and grabbing an ice cream.

I have just touched upon a similar topic regarding the sun vs. rainy weather, and I have even more to say about it! The sun is great--I am, however, a very pale Irishman with many freckles, and I also have to monitor my skin, moles, and birthmarks constantly due to the skin cancer which runs strongly through my family. That being said, there is something very hypnotic that i love about a dark rainy afternoon--the pelting down of the rain drops is a sound I love to hear, and I consider it to be a music all of its own. I also like thinking of the symbolism of rain in literature and how it is considered to be an ablution, or cleansing, of the world.

It's been raining nearly every day over here for the last few weeks and this rainy season has caused many inconveniences. Many people have lost their homes due to the floodings and since many crops have been destroyed their prices have soared. Moreover, I also missed an important appointment as I couldn't go out due to the bad weather. I am just hoping that the weather will be better in the coming days. I miss the sunny days where I could work in my garden and also drink lemonade sitting under the shady trees.

Between sun and rain, I'll choose rain because it's more comfortable with a cool breeze, it's so refreshing when it rains unlike when it's hot and humid that always gives me an uncomfortable feeling.
