I just felt compelled to mention after running in the storm/rain yesterday that nature is actually quite peaceful in the thick of it. We tend to look out the window or drive in our cars with the rain smashing against the windshield and think that this terrible weather is a mess. Maybe it was because I was doing intervals so the sound of my breathing and heart thumping were chaotic compared to that of the rain hitting the cement. But I enjoyed it and urge fair weather runners to give it a try. Running in a storm is far more interesting than running on a treadmill.
