Top 10 Best Things About Rain and Wet Weather

The wet weather we often refer to as “rain” is often associated as a bad thing. It’s often considered to be wet, cold, and straight up unbearable for most people. Despite that fact, the rain definitely has its positives.
The Top Ten
1 Less crowded streets

Since not many people like being wet, rainy days often mean that the streets are less busy and crowded than during sunny days. During rainy days, the streets are always quiet and it's much easier to get to places without people in front of you slowing you down and taking your time away.

Exactly - a nice empty neighborhood is a really nice spot to walk in and with soothing rain all around you, it's a good source of inspiration.

2 It’s a good excuse to stay indoors

Ever wanted to just binge watch a series or play video games without your parents interrupting you and telling you to go outside and play sports in the sun? Well… now that the rain has come, your parents would most likely not even bother, as most sports pitches are waterlogged.

So get your hot chocolates out and start binge-watching your TV series/movie marathons. Whether it be Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, or Back to the Future. (If it's raining that is)

Staying indoors when it's raining is the best. From my experience, when it's too hot out, I don't feel like doing anything. At least the rain in some way, gives me motivation to do things. Also, the sound of rain is very soothing.

Staying inside is for the weak. In the Midwestern US when it rains we go outside and maybe have a beer even when theres tornado sirens and the weather station tells you to go indoors.

The sound of rain pouring from outside makes the experience indoors more satisfying as well, whilst getting cosy at home.

3 It’s beneficial environmentally

Although plants and flowers most certainly need sunlight in order to grow, they also need the rain to water. It also fills up many important water landmarks such as rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds. It also provided the fish to live in a much happier environment.

Rain is like a drink to plants of the environment, including trees. A good balance between sunlight and rain in the atmosphere helps them to grow as well.

This deserves to be number one. The top two are nice but this is much more important. Good list though.

Rain basically helps keep our environment thriving.

4 The aftermath

The air smells clean and of enriched soil. You can take the little ones outside with their rain gear on, use a twig or pistachio shell and have boat races in the rushing street water.

In the aftermath of a rainy day, there's also a possibility of seeing a lovely colourful arch in the sky known as "rainbows". The flowers are usually much more colourful, and so is the landscape and other plants around you.

5 Comfy clothes

On hot summer days, you have to wear t-shirts and shorts, which aren't the most comfortable pieces of clothing. In rainy days, you get to wear a comfy raincoat, or a fluffy parka, and tracksuit pants, which makes it almost seem like you're in bed.

6 Although the outdoors are freezing, indoors are mostly toasty, heated, and full of blankets

You've never been in a more comfortably warm place as you have indoors when it's raining. With the heaters blasted on, you would most likely stay warm, and be in a room temperature room.

7 It gets the family together

Since no one from the family can get bothered to go in the rain, they mostly spend time together having fun such as playing board games and watching movies.

8 Productivity rates increase

Since you can't be bothered to go outdoors when it's raining, it's always good to use the time to increase productivity and work on school assignments that you have to hand in for the next day. It would even get you busy doing creative stuff such as writing stories and drawing pictures.

9 Puddles and mud

Depending on your views, playing and jumping on puddles can be very fun, just as long as you're wearing rain boots. Even though you don't want to go outside, it is still fun to get dirty by rolling around in the mud and getting other people wet.

10 The looks of it

Nothing more beautiful than seeing a foggy landscape full of a wet and windy outdoors. It may sound and look brutal, but that's also what makes the rain much more interesting.

I like the aesthetics of it and the sent of the outdoors when it stops! Especially in November or October.

The Contenders
11 It ends a summer heatwave

I love it when it's cooler because at least I can put something on to keep myself warm if needed.

Rain weather does cool the temperature for some time.

Ugh! 45 degree weather. Yuck!

12 Good floods

Not sure if floods can be a good thing.

13 Better sleep
14 It makes the area around us more humid
15 It's very soothing
16 It's mysterious
