    Re: in /under the rain

    Hi,
    Some people do indeed like to take walks in the rain.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    (It's the lightning that makes me stay inside, though!)

    Re: in /under the rain

    Oops. I had just corrected my typo when you posted!

    Last week, we were in the pool at the hotel when it started to rain really hard. All but a couple families left. I'm thinking "What, you're afraid the rain will make you wet while you swim?" But then, about ten minutes later, the lightning joined the party, so we ALL left then, of course.

    Better safe than sorry! I have to say I also love swimming in the rain. I have done it in a thunder/lightning storm too though it may not have been the cleverest thing I've ever done!
