My story, or how I discovered that I’m a Pluviophile

One day I made plans with a friend to meet in the evening. It was a winter day with scattered rain showers. Not long before the time we were supposed to meet, I called my friend and told her I will be a little late.

She asked if it’s because of the rain and in the same breath she offered that her husband come and pick me up in his car. So I said: “you misunderstood, I’m just waiting for the rain to get stronger so I can leave in the heavy rain”. She answered: “You’re crazy”. And me? I laughed with joy…

I’m a Pluviophile, and you?

There is a definition for the word Pluviophile, but in this section I would like to share with you the emotional meaning of the word, and why I decided to create this unique website.

Since I can remember I’ve always loved winter and rainy days. Most of my childhood memories have to do with things that happened on rainy days and most of the positive memories from my adult life happened in the winter. As the years went by, my love for winter only grew and a few years ago I realized that I’m a true Pluviophile.

As soon as it starts to rain (not necessarily a monsoon, just a rainy winter day), my heart fills with love. I feel good and positive toward myself and toward everyone around me and I have a strong desire to spread that positivity outward. In fact, the stormier the weather, the more I want to be outside.

I love rainy-day music, I love to photograph the rain, I wake up in the middle of the night just to listen to the rain and look at it through my window. I sit on the balcony and breathe in the cool, clean, wonderful air that the rain creates and I just feel good!

Dedicated to Pluviophiles, or what can you find in this website?

There was a time when I didn’t know there were people like me. I called them “the rain people” without knowing who they are and where to find them. Now I call them Pluviophiles and I invite them to gather and create a special community.

All content on this website is focused on the concept of Pluviophile. On this website you will find discussions, ideas and stories from readers. You can listen to rain sounds, view photos and videos, and find unique products that Pluviophiles will appreciate.

This website is dedicated to people who love rain, appreciate stormy weather, and generally have a wonderful time when it’s rainy out. If you consider yourself a Pluviophile, I invite you to join our unique community and enjoy an experience created especially for you.
