What do you like more: rain , snow or both ?

Asked by Hibernate (9025 points ) June 1st, 2011

What do you like more ?

The way it snows and makes everything white or maybe the way it rains and you can feel and hear the raindrops or maybe the warmth of a summer rain.

Maybe you like both.

I really like both. They both have different characteristics but are equally full of wonder (to me).

I love ‘em both.

Just separately, not together.

Plucky's avatar

@Jeruba I agree…seperately, not together.

I would rather choose rain. Snow time here is always crazy.

I’m not a huge fan of either, to be honest. Snow is no fun when your husband is a plow-driver… he can be gone for days at a time, getting very little sleep. Meanwhile, I’m snowed in and stuck home, in a very poorly insulated house. The cold seeps into my bones.

Rain = gray skies, and gloomy days always make me sad. I’d be thrilled if it only ever rained while I was sleeping, and was always nice and sunny or a beautiful twilight while I’m awake.

Give me a nice blue sky with a few high, fluffy clouds, 70 degrees or so, and a light breeze and I’m happy.

Snow. If nothing else, it doesn’t leak through my sunroof as badly :p

I love both when they are in another state. To me life don’t even begin to start until the temp hits 89 deg. 91 to 98 deg is perfect but I can stand to go as high as 101, above that it starts to get miserable.

What sort of rain? I love a summer downpour coming out of clear blue skies, but winter drizzle is not so great.

However, I prefer snow overall as I enjoy the way it reduces everyone to a more elemental level. Watching people attempt to push/drag shopping trolleys around a snow-bound supermarket car-park shouldn’t be funny, but is.

Snow. I love the cold. I hate being hot and perspiring.

I haven’t experienced snow in a significant way for many, many years. Did stand in some for about 30 minutes a few years ago but apart from that, no snow and I would love to wake up in the morning and look out and see a white garden. In saying that, I do remember getting home from a night out and it was snowing and I was so freezing I could hardly get the key in the door.
I love the rain too though. I think both are beautiful and special.

I do like both.

Snow is more rare. I hate it when it gets all black though. But I love walking through it, seeing it falling, seeing a pristine expanse of white.

I love the cozy feeling of reading in bed when it’s raining outside. I love the majesty of thunder storms. I love the really hard, pounding rain and the gentle showers,

I love a misty, drizzly morning in the Pacific Northwest.

If I had to choose, I’d choose rain. You don’t have to shovel it, and it’s easier to drive in.

Snow FTW!

Rain

Uberwench's avatar

No snow, too cold! But I do like being out in the rain sometimes (if it’s warm), and I like watching thunderstorms.

Sunny2's avatar

Now that we no longer have to shovel it, I have fond memories of snow. The hush of new snow muffling the sounds of the city is magical. I remember 6 foot snow drifts when I was only 3 feet tall. Coming in from the snow to have hot chocolate or chili was part of it too.

Skaggfacemutt's avatar

I love summer rain. I especially love the smell of summer rain falling on hot concrete.

There is nothing about snow that I like. :(

incendiary_dan's avatar

All depends on what my immediate ecosystem needs. Rain is good for watering the plants, but snow is really good for refilling underground aquifers because it melts slowly.

AshLeigh's avatar

… I’m from Alaska, dear.
We have snow for eight months of the year, and rain for most of the summer.
I have to learn to love them both…
Although today I will go with Rain, because it got me out of having to go anywhere. :D:D:D

I like rain and I like snow, it is the in between slush and sleet that I hate and which is very common here in Scotland.

creative1's avatar

I love a good summer thunder storm, makes you want to jump into your lovers arms……

ddude1116's avatar

Both, so long as there isn’t that wind that tears through you come with it.

OpryLeigh's avatar

@flutherother I would sell my soul to be in Scotland right now.

flutherother's avatar

@Leanne1986 Be careful what you wish for. The weather here has been cold wet and windy. Here’s hoping for a better June!

BeccaBoo's avatar

Summer rain, there is nothing like it, when its been hot and then the rain falls. I love it, and the smell in the grass and trees after.

YARNLADY's avatar

I hate snow, but I love a nice evening or 3 am shower, so I don’t have to water my lawn and flowers.

laineybug's avatar

Both, but for different reasons. I think I like rain more though. I like snow because it’s so pretty but I’m very sensitive to the cold. I like the rain because it’s pretty, it feels nice, it sounds nice, and it makes everything seem more fresh.

MilkyWay's avatar

Both. Rain is refreshing and revitialising. Snow is beautiful and crisp.

Only138's avatar

I’ll take rain any day. I think the snow looks cool and all that, but I hate the bitter cold that goes along with it.

Symbeline's avatar

I love snow, and the peace it brings, even during the most fiercest of storms. There’s just some fucked up shit about snow that’s all magical…although I do get pretty sick of it in the end of January.

Rain is awesome too, especially massive downpours. I love heavy rain on weekend mornings, when I’m in bed, and I hear it fall.

Being in ti sucks though.

Only138's avatar

@Symbeline Atleast you can make snowmen out of it. ;)

Symbeline's avatar

Anatomically correct snow people!

Only138's avatar

@Symbeline Well of course. That way the snowmen have the option of peeing in someones butt. ;)

Symbeline's avatar

@Only138 Lmao XD Nice lol XD

kitkat25's avatar

I like them both but I think I like the snow a little more. I love the cold weather and I like the way everything looks under a nice blanket of snow.

Raven_Rising's avatar

Misty rain or a very light snow
