It is about to rain here in SF Bay Area, nothing big, but raining none the less for the next week. - normally we have about 40" of rain during the “wet” season (October-May), so far we have 13". I want rain - I will dance in it - I don’t want to burn up this summer.
@kittykat9180 Nice days, I usually take mine out the front door and to the nearby park. But I’ll try to get her to go outside in the fenced back yard when it is raining. She’ll take a look at the rain coming down, and then immediately head for the front door! She’s three years old, and still hasn’t put it together. smh.

Any job requiring use of electric power tools outside

Pool/spa time (if no lightening)
some gardening, manual plant trimming
taking care of the chickens
Living in the Southern states, most of the time the rain is not terribly cold so a lot depends on my mood and the urgency of the project at hand. I also generally keep up with the forecast, so I plan my activities accordingly in advance.
We have an access lot for the lake between two neighbors at my dads house and it has a big hill leading down to the lake. One neighbor always has a 4th of July party but half way through the day it started to downpour. So in stead on sitting inside I decided to get a bottle of dish soap and a garbage bag and start sliding down the hill. Everyone came out and slide down the hill and we ended up dancing and playing in the lake in the rain. That was probably one funnest 4th of July’s I’ve had.
When we would take my elderly dad on vacation he would always complain if it rained where we were. I tried to explain to him that someone was always on vacation in those spots and they had to have some rain sometimes or all the plants would die and we wouldn’t want to be there… So we were just the “lucky” ones!
(besides, a bad day at the beach is still generally better than a good day at work…)
