My condition has a name! 🙂 seriously, I love nothing more than snuggling in on a rainy day. I find it very peaceful and restorative….Don’t think I could take a steady diet it of, ala Seattle, but here and there, absolutely…. 🙂
(Y) You said it all, Lori 🙂 …lover of rain!
We’re aligned pal. Squarely aligned.
I could handle a steady diet of it. We went through 3 weeks of rain and cloudy days here back in 1994 and I was sad when the sun came out. I thrived during that time. People think I’m crazy, but rain is my weather. I can’t get enough of it!
Good for you…Not sure that I could take 3 straight weeks but I, too, can tuck in and get comfortable in rainy weather.
I couldn’t agree more, i want to live somewhere beautiful, and where it rains more than it doesn’t.
You explained exactly how I feel too! And people give me the same weird looks and comments. They ask, do you like the gray days too? I say, YES, the more the merrier. I thrive when it gets gray and the rain comes down. I do not look forward to summer. Thankfully I live in Oregon, but I wish I was in Forks!
Oregon God’s Country!
Just found out I have a name. Have always loved rainy days and yes people think I am crazy. Hate it when the son comes out! I am hating the thought of summer (except for the rainy, stormy days which I hope will be often).
🙂 Hi Darlene. Thanks for sharing.
You speak as if you were me!! Exactly how I feel. I think I’d be happy to have rain every day. I love rain, I love everything about it, the sound it makes, the smell, the way it looks. I get headaches when it is sunny, and my eyes hurt. But that’s not why I love the rain, I’ve always loved rain. I can remember as a child wanting to go outside once the rain began. Seattle used to get a lot of rain but does not anymore. I’m researching the rainiest place in North America and if I win the lottery I’ll go!!

Smiling. Let’s hope you win the Lotto!
I’m going to honestly admit my envy, three weeks! In my GLORY, I’d of been, what we have here in June is many days of rain that if there were a name for lovers of the month of June for that reason, I’d be that too! 3 years running we had first, 23 days, next, 20 and this year about the same, but not steady, I could, would and want a steady rainy day and rainy nughts? Even better! I’m also a nyctophile, one who loves the dark, I’m in my utter element, if you’ll excuse the unintended pun, when it’s dark of night AND raining, I’m happy to be amongst people who not only thrive in rainy conditions, but share their story even if my padiddling with each of you is through the glass screen of my cellphone, I thank you all for sharing and David for bringing it to light, so to speak, finding this the day of FallBack, no less, I respect the Sun, but were there a star called Rain, I’d “worship” it
Blessings to all, Marie
Wonderful comment Marie. You swept me away. Thanks for dropping by and sharing.
I love sitting on the porch when it rains. Listening to the pattering of raindrops on the roof. I sometimes even go for a run in the rain. Love it.
Me too Frank. (Only in the spring and summer of course)
Of course. Unless you are a polar bear.
Laughing. Or a Finlander.
I really had no idea there were others out there like me. I only hear people groaning about cloudy and rainy days. I’ve always loved rain. And don’t even get me started about snow!
Nor did I Frank….
Hello – My name is RoSy & I’m a Pluviophile.
Laughing. Like it!
I vote with everyone else – just not as a daily dose..
Yep. I’m with you. Let the sun shine.
i have my pluvi days and my sunny days
🙂 Smart and witty…
I love watching storms come in over the ocean and I love running in the rain (warm, Florida rain, that is)
nothing can soothe me as the rain does! Its like I forget to whre i belong ….it feels ME to b jst living the raindrops 🙂
Me too Aakriti. Rain is soothing…
gosh all these years i thought i was alone ….this is me to my core….does anyone know if i could purchase this poster? really would love it…searched but no luck
Sorry, don’t know….
I found it here.
Thank you Shirley
I’m a raging Pluviophile!! I LOVE the rain!
🙂 Me too!
Soothing and comforting… not to mention it smells wonderful.
Yes, it is Kim…I’m with you.
Heh! All this time I didn’t know there was a name for this! 🙂
Nor did I!
My nickname is Rain Fan. I live in & LOVE Oregon.
🙂 Live and Love Oregon. Who wouldn’t! Lucky you Rain Fan…
I cant see how anyone could become depressed by rain…its like my liquid happiness. That and vodka
Whoa, I’ve got PEEPS and didn’t know it! Have been ostracized for years for thriving in the rain.
And here you were perfectly normal!
Finally a name for this thoughts of Loving when it rains, and people who understand my plight. The rain brings peace and a certain calmness to my very being, I must live in a rainy place if not i would be depressed, I feel such excitement when it’s cloudy anticipating the rain.
Hi Mujeed. Thanks for sharing. I have similar thoughts and feelings particularly with summer rain.
I love it. I swear I was meant to live in the Northwest. I love rain. Not so good when you live in Texas 🙂
There’s still time Jess (to live in the NOrthwest)! 🙂
I love to sit on the oceans bluff in Oregon in a warm thunder storm & watch the lightning strike the water, so awesome, & I love to sit on a lg. rock next to a stream listening to the trees, the wind & the brook babble, rain or shine , good for soul searching, especially in my home town. 🙂
Gigi, you are blessed to be afforded this beauty and serenity…
I too have loved the rain all my life. Now I’ve come to realize why. Sometimes life hurts so much and rain washes all the dirt life brings. Its like starting with a clean slate after every rain storm. 🙂
Beautifully stated. Thank you Deb
Rain. Thunderstorms. Hail. Tornadoes. Sleet. Snow. I love all kinds of storms. Sunshine is depressing to me. Yep, I’m upside down and backwards, and I know it. And I don’t care.
Works for me too Carole.
I live in Washington State and it rains 80% of the time. I do not mind it as I grew up in Southeast Alaska and it rained there all but one day my senior year.
Wow, that’s a lot of rain Gina. Thanks for dropping by.
I do love when it rains. I easily catch up my lessons when it rains because I feel relax and comfortable.
Me too… very soothing.
I pray for rain. I love this post. The last time it rained in my drought ridden So. Calif town, I was jubilant all day. Paulette 🙂
Ahhhh, so sorry to hear that. We had rain most of the day today. Here’s to rain soon for you.

That makes two of us!!! We are in a drought here in Texas too and so it makes the absence of rain even more painful! Thank you for visiting my blog today. I’m glad you liked my post and hope you will come again sometime. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
Hi Natalie. Sorry about your drought. No drought here. We’re dealing with flooding highways and basements…
I get up in the morning draw the blinds and if it’s overcast and raining it cheers me up no end…
Henry, you aren’t alone!
It’s interesting. We all have our own response to the elements of nature based on our own chemistry. I always loved to look out at the ocean and never knew the mountain air is much better for me, better suited for my constitution.
Yes, so true. I find both (ocean, mountain air) suited for me.
You’re apparently more balanced than I am. =)
Let’s say more exposed. More balanced – hmmmmm. 🙂

I say “more” in simple comparison. If you were as off kilter as I, you’d be in quite a pickle!
I must be a pluviophile because I love everything about the rain, the smell of the rain is a great intoxicant for me, it cleans, it rejuvenate, it relaxes, it comforts, it brings out amorous feelings within me.
YEAH!!!! it rained all night here in Southern California, where I live because we have not had any rain for the last eleven months, I was so happy for it that I got up and opened my back door reveled with the joy of the rain.
So glad you had rain…you need it!
Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
Love this …. I love rainy days!!!
Awesome!! You beat me to the punch … I was going to use that pic sometime. You were faster!!! LOL … glad you did!!! I am one of them ….. 🙂
I finally beat you to something, you are EVERYWHERE!
LOL … so are you!! 🙂
Wow! this is incredible. I love the rain, storms, thunder, lightening, dark days etc and I just thrive!
friends and family have always thought I’m quite mad.
when the sun comes out I cope only because I know it will rain again. To much sun and I actually feel down!
I’ll be showing them this article and saying “there you are, I’m not alone”
Does it rain a lot where you are? =)
Ah, it was a wishful post. =)
Wow, it’s a great feeling to see there r other people in world feeling like me,
Rain and snow shifts my sprit to another lever , I’m literally in love with rainy days and
Imagine leaving in Los angeles ;)) everyone call me crazy they say I’m leaving in heaven and
I can’t explain to them why my soul need rain need storm, needs snow , I mean even my family
Think I’m crazy beacuase I want to move to east coast ,I feel another person when I see rain or snow
I’m so glad other people share the same thing with me
Theres nothing better than sitting out on a rainy day, closing my eyes and listening to the rain, to feel the rain pattering down on my face, it is just unbelievably calming and relaxing, and also quite refreshing, i am with you all on this, i get looked at funny, called crazy for prefering the rain, but when i explain why and the feeling i get, very few can understand, the rest still think im nuts, ive even gone as far as having an app on my phone for those summer nights in bed, so i can listen to the rain and thunder to help me sleep.
Beautifully stated Ashley. Thank you.
I love rain, spring, summer, and fall – but, come winter – it’s the cold, beautiful snow that cheers me! Indoors with a cup of hot chocolate and a book (and a blanket) – I’m set for hours on end!
Winter! OMG. Too soon. Too soon.
I absolutely love rain and thunderstorms. I will only watch the news channel in hopes that there will be thunderstorms. I’ve always thought of it as a weird obsession that I possess. I’m still not sure what term this type of love for storms is also known as.
Nor do I, but I understand how you feel.
And i thought I was the only 1…
Oh no Kay. This membership is vast!
Monsoon season for me is absolute favourite. Big clouds and thunder… heavy rain. Absolute bliss
Me too….and soothing taps on roof….
Omg I cant believe their are others that feel the same as me. I hate summer. Just love the rain. I’m a dog walker so out in all conditions. Long let it rain!!!
Reblogged this on Truth Troubles: Why people hate the truths' of the real world.
I cannot believe so many others share my love of rain. Even better with thunder and lightening! I find it so peaceful and really good for the soul.
Hi Janet. There are many of us like-kinds out there. :). Thanks for dropping by.
My husband was just saying today how he hates summer. It’s loud and hot. You feel guilty for not getting outside more. It is more expensive if you want to take a trip. We both love the rain and cooler weather. Fortunately, we live in an area that is more suitable to those conditions. Olympia, Washington is great. But, we are experiencing a heat wave a looking into an air cooling system.
Olympia, WA, beautiful country. Lucky you
This world is plagued with the judgemental human. Send as if most people dispise inclement weather and associate the same with depression, trouble, darkness et’ cetera. To the pluviophile, rain is good, edifying, liberating, calming, warning and a subdued day makes us see things better, like polarized lenses. I don’t mind sunny days, actually we need the sun for health, however I prefer an overcast day to stay home or get cozy with the one I Love. There’s no comparison to driving the road on an overcast day. I can see things better and it is very relaxing. I surmise that either I’m an oddball or possibly, a normal majority. At my age, I don’t confirm to the others’ ideas of the perfect day, I simply love the way I feel on days of forecasted thunderstorms and overcast skies!!!
Hi Anthony. I share similar sentiments. Rain or shine, I’m good.
Wow …… I just searched online and found people who are like me. I live in England and we are lucky to have great rain every year. I for as long as I remember have loved to sit wrapped up under an umbrella in the garden whenever it rains and I feel so peaceful. It gives me time to think about everything almost like I can imagine people who meditate feel.
It’s my favourite place in the world to be. I used to skip school and sit all day in the rain. Now I sometimes miss work so it’s a good job I have my own business to get away with it.
I thought it was just me
