Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
Rainbows apologize for angry skies.
The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.
To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.
Weather is a great metaphor for life - sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, and there's nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.
The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It is one of the secrets of Nature in its mood of mockery that fine weather lays heavier weight on the mind and hearts of the depressed and the inwardly tormented than does a really bad day with dark rain sniveling continuously and sympathetically from a dirty sky.

No one but Night, with tears on her dark face,Watches beside me in this windy place.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay
Coal lay in ledges under the ground since the Flood, until a laborer with pick and windlass brings it to the surface. We may will call it black diamonds. Every basket is power and civilization. For coal is a portable climate.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Rain! whose soft architectural hands have power to cut stones, and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains.
~Henry Ward Beecher
When snow falls, nature listens.
~Antoinette van Kleeff
Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger.
A rainy day is the perfect time for a walk in the woods.

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.
~Mark Twain, attributed
There is a muscular energy in sunlight corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind.
For the man sound in body and serene of mind there is no such thing as bad weather; every day has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously.
~George Gissing, "Winter," The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft, 1903
The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you'd just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency.
~Susan Allen Toth, England For All Seasons
The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?
Snowflakes are kisses from heaven.
My favorite weather is bird-chirping weather.

The snow doesn't give a soft white damn whom it touches.
There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.
The sky was dark and gloomy, the air was damp and raw, the streets were wet and sloppy. The smoke hung sluggishly above the chimney-tops as if it lacked the courage to rise, and the rain came slowly and doggedly down, as if it had not even the spirit to pour.
What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.
Under my head till morning; but the rainIs full of ghosts tonight, that tap and sighUpon the glass and listen for reply....
~Edna St Vincent Millay
The wind shows us how close to the edge we are.
Spooky wild and gusty; swirling dervishes of rattling leaves race by, fleeing the windflung deadwood that cracks and thumps behind.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Where does the white go when the snow melts?
A snowflake is one of God's most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!
Snowmen fall from heaven... unassembled.
When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels.
I used to stare up at the sky trying to see where the snowflakes were born. I could do it for hours. Well, minutes. But it was always the waiting that was the most fun.
~Author unknown, from a package of Starbucks coffee, 2010
The substance of the winds is too thin for human eyes, their written language is too difficult for human minds, and their spoken language mostly too faint for the ears.
Through woods and mountain passesThe winds, like anthems, roll.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
He had been eight years upon a project for extracting sunbeams out of cucumbers, which were to be put into vials hermetically sealed, and let out to warm the air in raw, inclement summers.
Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
~Anthony J. D'Angelo, The College Blue Book
It was an ideal spring day, a light blue sky, flecked with little fleecy white clouds drifting across from west to east. The sun was shining very brightly, and yet there was an exhilarating nip in the air, which set an edge to a man's energy.
~Arthur Conan Doyle
The sun lay like a friendly arm across her shoulder.
~Margorie Kinnan Rawlings, South Moon Under
Bad weather always looks worse through a window.
Name the season's first hurricane Zelda and fool Mother Nature into calling it a year.

There's one good thing about snow, it makes your lawn look as nice as your neighbor's.
The offing was barred by a black bank of clouds, and the tranquil water-way leading to the uttermost ends of the earth flowed somber under an overcast sky - seemed to lead into the heart of an immense darkness.
There is little chance that meteorologists can solve the mysteries of weather until they gain an understanding of the mutual attraction of rain and weekends.
I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains. One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge, but one misses a world of loveliness.
New-England weather - it is a matter about which a great deal is said, but very little done.
~Charles Dudley Warner, 1884, commonly attributed to Mark Twain as "Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it." (Thanks, Garson O'Toole!)
