    I think it is foul no matter what. I don't like myself or my things being unintentionally damp.

    I actually like rain very much - as long as I don't have to go outside. :D

    I've double glazing in the flat and the computer is just too far from the windows - so I can't hear the pitter patter of rain unless its a real driving torrent of the stuff

    I love rain. I hate gray clouds for days with no rain though.

    I'm in Arizona, where it hardly ever rains. So to me, it's the best time ever. I really thrive off of it. In fact, sunshine is what's depressing. haha.

    As I have an affinity to blue elements (air and water), I enjoy everything in connection with them. So, rain is an attribute of "water". Water can be a lot. It can be a blessing in a desert or after a drought. It can give thirsty land and people to "drink" and fosters growth. It will prevent people and animals dying from thirst. Rain can also be comfort and healing as the murmuring of water brings inner peace and harmony, calmness, when listening to it. It has also some purifying effect in washing away past memories or past deeds. Water can grant strength and power to those willing to absorb its force in its extremes like waterfalls and/or thunderstorms. Water can be a natural avenger as floods and tsunamis show men that they are not masters of the whole universe or able to subdue nature. Also a mood of festivity and solemnity can be created by water (fountains) like "water games" when fountains dance to the rhythm of music in botanical gardens.
    For people who are sad water can also be very helpful in losing their tears, let them flow easier, when heaven is wheeping too which also will cause another healing process as crying helps to process sorrow and grief. Some people whose mood is addicted to weather will get a gloomy mood when it's dark or grey (rainy, foggy etc.)
    Someone when in meditation or concentration people can see pictures (of things, of people) in the falling rain.

    It depends on the temperature. I like/love warm rain, and strongly dislike cold rain. I am also a fan of overcast days - the greyer the better. It's no wonder I love 'The Road' so much.

    I love pouring rain. I detest drizzle and mist though. If I'm going to get wet, I'm going to get soaking, none of that damp rubbish. Warm rain freaks me out though, it's supposed to be cold. Luckily we never get warm rain here. Plus I swear my eyes are freakishly sensitive, sunlight tends to pain me. Rain means clouds, clouds mean I can go outside without wishing death upon anyone. Well... Wishing death on many people... Or... Okay, clouds mean I can go outside without wishing death on myself. Everybody else is fair game...

    The same with me. But sometimes it is even difficult with rain or clouds as how the angle of the light falls in. When there is sun, even above clouds and a bit broken, it may blind me as well. But pouring rain is a fine thing. I like the power of the elements.

    I love rain, but only if is is a really heavy downpour. I cant stand drizzle and really fine rain.

    I agree with Harald, rain in and of its self makes me happy, I love the smell and taste of it int he air; though when it is this drizzle of on and off sprinkle like crap, tis boring, sad and dull.

    Rain doesn't bother me in the slightest, It doesn't change my mood at all unless I have to go for a long drive in it or I'm trying to have a BBQ. On the flip side, A quick shower on a 40C+ day is good.
