The Urban Dictionary (which I’m pretty sure is the only one you’ll find this word in!) defines the “word” pluviophile as someone who not only loves rain, but also someone who finds joy and peace of mind on rainy days.
I do realize that this isn’t exactly a word yet, but I see no reason why it shouldn’t be considered one.
Also, it’s one of those words that fits perfectly when I try to describe myself. I don’t know if I can say I’ve always been a pluviophile, but I’ve been one for as long as I can recall. Who doesn’t have fun splashing around in puddles and coming inside soaking wet from playing out in the rain?
And I do find rain to be soothing. I could almost dare say that I feel a bit more creative when it’s raining, though why I couldn’t say.
Speaking of which, while searching for some good background noise last year when I was getting ready for NaNoWriMo, I came across this website; I’ve enjoyed it quite a bit since then! 🙂 It’s just got the sound of rain with a few (not startling) rolls of thunder thrown in now and then for good measure.
How ’bout you? Are you a lover of rain?
