Some people like to listen to the patter of rain to help them fall asleep. Not me. Not only does the rain not promote restful sleep in my case it disrupts it. I dislike the sound of rain tapping on my air conditioner. I especially feel trepidation when it rains because I live on the top floor of an apartment building and years ago I had a leak and I always fear a return engagement. For those who are fortunate enough not to know it can take a while to be fixed even with the most conscientious landlord. Rain may be essential to a vegetable garden but it not welcome as a leaky roof.
