The Wet Day To Whet Inspiration

Morning Folks,

Once again I'm playing with words that sound alike--homonyms. (Anybody who regularly reads this blog knows I love words). In this case wet and whet. Wet meaning damp, and whet meaning excite, inspire, encourage (like "whet your appetite").

Today it's pouring down rain. The clouds are thick, white sheets in the sky. Very gloomy. Not exactly the type of day that lends itself to pepping up my spirit (I'm a sunshiny, fall weather type). However, some people love rain. I have a friend who likes the rain. While I see droopy leaves and gray skies, she thinks the world looks fresh and new.

Generally the weather doesn't precisely inspire me, but I expect there's people out there who find the weather quite inspiring. So, if you do, what kind of weather inspires you and why? Do you like the rain or prefer sunshine? What season do you like?

Have A Fresh Friday!

I hate rainy days! So hard to be motivated! I am directly affected by the weather so I love sunshine and clear spring days with low humidity. You know that week we get sometime at the end of March here in Texas.lol

Oh you mean the 3 days of Spring? LOL. I prefer fall and winter when it's cold (or at least cooler...usually--except when we wear SHORTS on CHRISTMAS Day). Hopefully it'll be a nice cold Christmas :-) (I reserve the right to complain about the weather, since no matter where I lived I'd find something to complain about regarding the weather LOL).

I don't particularly like rain but there's something about a rainy, gloomy day that lends itself to staying inside and writing. Or staying in bed with a good book!

One of the worst things about living in Portland is that it rains, but doesn't thunderstorm. I love thunderstorms... the pounding rain, booming thunder... can't beat it.

My husband likes to watch lightning. Not me. I like peace and quiet in my weather...nothing drastic, but comfortable.
