Are ghosts bothered when it rains?

Asked by elbanditoroso (24541points) February 24th, 2018

I wouldn’t think so, because they are supposed to be non-corporeal beings. But in movies and books they are always shown with a human body.

Does a ghost get wet? Does a ghost need a raincoat? Do ghosts care if they are wet?

The rain goes right through them. They are transparent.

In the novel The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, which echoes the plot of Hamlet, the silhouette of a ghost is visible because the rain doesn’t pass completely through it. It outlines the figure.

That’s the only time I’ve ever seen a fictional ghost manifest in that way. I credit the author’s powers of invention to come up with that workaround for the customary limitations on making the incorporeal visible.

Yes, they hate it. That is why they are always inside.

No, as it is only in gloomy misty and wet weather that they can manifest themselves. They are completely invisible in bright sunlight.
