May I just say that I love a gentle spring rain? Not a torrential downpour with high winds and tornado sirens, but a nice, steady rain with just a little bit of thunder and lightening. It's doing that right now. I have all the windows open and the breeze through the house is pleasant. The mud that my sons tracked through the house when I called them in out of the rain is not pleasant. Oh, well, you can't win 'em all!
