to love the sound of heavy rain

It's the most relaxing sound possible for me. I open the bedroom window wide and snuggle up in bed.
Is this a throwback from being forced to sleep in a campavan as a kid or does everyone like it?

Also, where the hell do I get a good recording?! All I've come across sound like white noise. Not the same

I love it too. It helps me get to sleep.

Another one laying listening - also love the sound of rain on a tent.

Have you tried the 'Rain Rain' app. I love it, so relaxing

I have a skylight on the landing and I'm currently enjoying the sound of rain on it. Also thinking about the poor, parched garden - it so desperately needs a good drenching - so that's very relaxing too.

It's keeping me calm as pat my poorly little ones bum all night. Rain on (watertight) canvas is the best.

I adore it.

If it's raining at night I open the window and listen to the sound.

No idea about a recording but I find it soothing too. Definitely harks backs to caravanning as a child and the cosiness it gave.

Also remember driving back from Blackpool illuminations in heavy rain, watching the rain trickle down the windows. Very relaxing. Stuffed full of fish and chips and tired from walking along the front grin

Yep I love it too. It makes me feel calm, gets me to sleep. Don't quite feel the same when I'm stuck in it though.hmm

I love it too. I think it's the extra feeling you get of being safe, protected and cosy, all wrapped up warm and snug in your duvet while a storm rages outside. My DP thinks I'm nuts.

I've always liked this. Though I can see how it sounds rather white noise-like, now you mention it.

Rainy mood + jazz

The quality of the rain sound is better on Rainy Mood's site:

rainfall sounds sleep 10 hours & there are lots more available*

* I don't own or run this or other videos btw.

I have a white noise app on ipad that includes rain on ground, rain on window, rain on umbrella. Though my fave is aeroplane cabin noise. I prefer an app cos I can't find a way to close the youtube app without stopping it and it's too bright to sleep to

Download the Rain Rain app, it has several different rain options and you can blend them together to make your own perfect mix. I like dirty rain mixed with laundromat and ocean waves, it sends me happily to sleep.

It's lovely the first few nights. After that I pity my waterlogged garden.

DS2 has a skylight in his bedroom. He woke up half an hour ago and called for me. It was lovely snuggling with him and listening to the rain.

Temporary2002 Wed 17-May-17 04:57:20

I do too, there are some great videos on youtube, here is one channel.

UserThenLotsOfNumbers Wed 17-May-17 05:50:38

Me too.
There are "relaxing noises" apps available that often have rain sounds.

DoctorDonnaNoble Wed 17-May-17 06:04:40

I love it. And the smell of rained on recently dry ground - or petrichor.

Teabagtits Wed 17-May-17 06:07:09

I love that sound too, particularly in a tent or similar. It makes me very sleepy

LittleBooInABox Wed 17-May-17 06:14:52

Yanbu - it's lovely! And the smell of the earth after 🙂

I live in a chalet bungalow with velux roof lights in my bedroom and love lying there in the dark listening to the pitter-patter.
Reminds me of caravan holidays when I was little. If there was thunder and lightning mum would make us all hot chocolate and we'd sit up and watch the storm.
The teens will not be happy this morning if it persists at bus stop time.

blubberball Wed 17-May-17 06:21:34

Yep, it's lovely. I sometimes find some good videos on YouTube.

Natsku Wed 17-May-17 06:24:12

It is so lovely, definitely best hearing it in a tent.
