My Love/Hate About Rainy Days

Today’s Thursday 13 is all about my love/hate relationship with rainy days! Especially considering the last week or so we’ve had in the Northeast.

This morning the rain was so bad, the road to the train station was flooded! Hubby had to drop me off a block earlier so I could traipse through rushing waters in my trusty rain boots. I wish I could send just a little bit of the water to all my friends in Texas who need it so badly.

Anyway, here is my attempt at 13 things I love/hate about rainy days. Feel free to help me out with your comments.

1. Love staying home tucked under the covers.
2. Hate having to commute in this mess.
3. Love curling up with a good book and a cup of tea.
4. Hate wet feet. I must be part cat.
5. Love the thunder and lightning.
6. Hate the thunder and lightning when I am out of doors and know it’s more likely I’ll get hit by the lightning than win the Lottery.
7. Love how the rain makes all the plants perk up.
8. Hate how the rain rots out my tomatoes.
9. Love standing beneath a tree after the rain and having the wind shake loose those last little drops.
10. Hate seeing the big trees with too few roots come down in the rain.
11. Love splashing through the puddles in my rain boots.
12. Hate finding out my rain boots are not as waterproof as I thought.
13. Love snuggling with my hubby in the morning, holding hands and listening to the rain hit the roof.

  1. Hi, Caridad. Yes, I’m with you on all your points! Here in California, though, due to a drought we’ve had for about 8 years now, we don’t get to see much rain. I know you guys are swamped on the East Coast! When I spent a month in Chicago this summer, I definitely got to hear lots of thunder, see plenty of lightning, and enjoy rain showers off and on throughout the month. Lovely! In moderation!!

  2. Oh how I am wanting and wishing for a rainy day… feels like so long since I’ve had that great excuse for an “inside day.”

    Happy TT!

  3. Hate going to work and driving with the wipers never quite strong enough.
    Love walking in the rain when it feels like softness and showers.
    And all of yours of course…

  4. I love the rain because it keeps all the neighbors in the house & I can sit on my big porch & enjoy the quiet. lol!!
    I love the rain because I know it is not snow time yet & in Buffalo we have enough of that to share.

    I love your boots. I need a pair like that.——-Rachel

  5. I have the rain love/hate thing too. I don’t get to see too much rain here though,s o mostly, I’ve been loving it lately.
    Great 13 for this time of year 🙂

  6. I absolutely love the rain when I don’t have to travel in it. The way it sounds on our little sun roof and hitting the porch. I even like being out in it close to home.

    There’s just something inherently snuggly about rain and thunderstorms when you can be tucked away at home. And now that I live in a drought state, the sound is even more welcome.

    I agree with your negatives, but we just need it so badly here that I smile whenever I hear the first hints. 🙂

    Happy T13,

  7. I hate commutes even without rains. But tonight I came home wading in ankle-deep water. Good if it’s raining men, but it’s just plain old rain. Good heavens.
