    When It Rains..

    I love it when it rains! Especially on a summer night. We live on a farm and we just crack the window open to let the cool air in and the smell of the rain just fill the room. Then we like to listen to it hitting our tin roof is just really relaxing then to see the flash of...

    Nature'S Lullaby

    That's how rain feels like when it soothes me to sleep. It's just easier to fall asleep to the sound of rain. And it helps me fall into a much deeper sleep too & gives me sweet dreams, like the gentle rain that falls...

    Rain On A Tin Roof

    I grew up near a creek that flooded quickly when we had too much rain. We would go across the creek and stay with neighbors to avoid getting flooded in where we couldn't go to school. These neighbors lived in a cool,large farm house with a tin roof. I loved the sound of the...

    Tonight

    Tonight isn't raining. I feel sad because i don't like sleeping when there's no rain. I like it when it really storms outside, I don't know why but it makes me feel secure and calm. I love thunder especially, its nice :) Anyone else feel the same bout stormy nights?

    Deep, Restful Sleep

    I love the sound of rain hitting the roof while I'm going to sleep. It sounds so soothing and calming to me. It helps me drift into a deep restful sleep, and allows me to feel fully energized when I wake up the next morning. The soft, fast pelts of the raindrops falling down onto...

    Rain, Rain

    Lucky for me, I live on the coast of Oregon where it rains nearly 8 months of the year, if not more. It ****** me off when I see rain clouds in the moring but at night, It is so soothing. I have insomnia so Its kind of a necessity to have white noise going on in the background to...

    For As Long As I Can Remember…

    …I have found the sound of rain on my windows and the ground outside very peaceful and relaxing. The rain adds a peacefulness to the atmosphere along with the gentle scent of damp foliage that only wet weather can offer. This is one of the most sleep inducing situations for me...

    A Calm Sound

    I love the rain, especially the spring and summer seasons. I also love the smell of rain and hearing the rain hit the house or seeing the lightning strike down on the earth. But also I love sleeping during rain storms because it has this calm and relaxing sound that it has when...

    Listening To The Rain

    Lying here, trying to switch off after another frenetic day of caring for patients. The rain sounds especially loud on my tin roof. My garden is drenched and it will be a muddy walk to the car in the morning. I love the rain, the louder the better, it's comforting- kind of...

    My mom thinks its weird

    because rain always keeps her up but I love falling asleep to the sound of rain hitting the window panes. Its like a little rhythm to help me sleep. I find it very relaxing and calm and, well, natural.

    It's A Pleasant Background Noise

    that blocks out other noise. And it smells good. Where I am in British Columbia it rains a fair bit so I'm lucky. I do get a fair number of peaceful nights.

    Soothing.

    Thunderstorms on a tin roof, amazing. I find the sound of rain very soothing and relaxing. It's so nice to fall asleep with it in the background. So I downloaded an app which mimics the sound, it's nice but nothing is better then the real thing.

    I Always Open The Window

    I always open the window when it's raining at night so I can hear the rain better. I love the smell of the cold air during a rain, and the chill from it on my face when my body is wrapped in blankets helps me to sleep.

    If it's raining when I go to sleep I'll always

    open the window a little just so I can hear it better and I always find I nod off so easily. There's something about it I find relaxing.

    But I Can't Seem To Get Up

    So, there's the double-edged part of that one. A great big thunderstorm works like a sleeping pill on me. I'm groggy and sleepy. Good thing I live in Houston, TX where we never have thunderstorms ever. :)
