I really do like the sound of rain. I don't want to be out in it but I like the sound of it hitting the house or the sidewalk. There is something refreshing about it. Yesterday at church it sounded like we had a torrential downpour not once but twice. They even had to turn up the volume on the pastor's talk. When we went outside, the sidewalks were dry and there were only a few puddles. Why the difference? The sound of rain on a metal building is amplified by about 100 so what was probably a sprinkling turned into a downpour in sound.
I still like the sound of rain. I'm just a poor judge of how much is falling.
