Great piece this, Danielle!
I live in the UK and I must admit that I celebrate the rains here, too, when many don’t.
I often find myself saying, “What do you think creates ‘England’s green and pleasant land’ from Blake’s famous poem? It wouldn’t be green if it wasn’t for rain!”
The same is even more true for Scotland.
Rain always feels refreshing and nourishing to me.
And as for snow…
Great stuff — thanks for sharing ;-)
