Rain is most enjoyable for me from indoors. I love to watch rain fall, listen to it pitter patter on the window panes as I stay warm and snuggled inside. I love the feeling of a storm, the sight of a lightning bolt shooting across the sky, the sound of rumbling, grumbling thunder. While there's really nothing like being caught in a summer rainfall - in New York City it is one of the most romantic scenes imaginable - I would prefer to be a rain observer, not participant. However, any nature girl would agree that the effect rain has on the great outdoors is unmatchable. It is one of life's little pleasures to see dew-kissed, leafy trees, vibrant green grass, to know that come spring, gardens will be alive thanks to winter's weather.
