If you're really into watching Netflix during the summer, it's hard to watch it outside on a sunny day because you can't see the screen and then you feel guilty for sitting inside when it's nice out, but rain gives you a perfect excuse.

3. Rainy weather makes for really good naps

SImilar to the Netflix thing, rain takes any guilt you might have about not going outside away. Plus, it cools the weather off so you can snuggle up with a blanket.
