Pleasant listening: What happens when rain falls

For me, as someone who is vision impaired, it is always a very interesting experience, and for better or worse there is nothing that I can do about it. 

Firstly, if the rain is heavy then my ability to navigate around myself is greatly hampered because I am unable to hear what is close by.  I cannot hear what others are saying to me and I am lost because I become disoriented.

Then come the puddles that I am forced to try and avoid.  I have to walk gingerly and use my cane to try and locate the puddles. 

If I am with someone else then I need to place my trust in them when walking, in that I would trust them to lead me around the puddles.

I love it when rain falls because I get to hear the raindrops drumming on my windows. Or if I happen to be in the Caribbean I can hear them falling on rooftops.  I also like to hear the cars driving through the puddles and making splashing sounds as they go.
