Pluviophile: “a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days.”
I discovered this word tonight on Facebook. It’s me, a lover of rain. I love the sun as well but there is something soothing about rain. Especially spring rain which is often spirited with wind, sun breaks, and rainbows.
I moved from the ever sunny Southern California in 1970 to attend college. I didn’t realize that I would fall in love with rain. That was forty-four years ago. Don’t get me wrong, I love sunshine as well. But a good rainstorm can be magical.
Could it be that with rain there’s a cleansing, a clearing of ideas? Or does the rain bring idea seeds? Whatever the case, I love the ever changing nature of weather in the Pacific Northwest. So happy to be a pluviophile.
