Describe a rainy day you can remember
You should say:
- when it was
- what you did on that day
- how long it rained
- and explain how you felt about the day being rainy
Last year, in the middle of December, I remember one of the rainy days precisely. Although I don’t know the exact date, I can still vividly think that the moment I opened my eyes and looked out of my balcony, the dark, black cloud had covered the entire sky. Lightning was threatening, and it was drizzling. Looking at the weather, I felt good instantly. Moments after, it started raining like cats and dogs.
Usually, in the area where I live, it does not rain during this month. Thus, it was quite atypical. In the month of November, it is generally chilly, and we experience acute cold. Therefore, nobody had anticipated rain at this time as it boosted coldness even further. Also, just within half an hour, my locality had become muddy. Since I am a university student and I had my exams during that time, the day was enthralling for me. I wanted to have a peaceful and tranquil environment around to keep my concentration levels up and study with my heart and soul. And, what could be better than a rainy day?
I took all of my books, laptop and other accessories and sat on the balcony. I had a cup of tea with a plate full of lip-smacking Indian snacks. Nothing can beat that. To my amazement, it rained the entire day and I completed my syllabus without a bit of distraction. The thought came into my mind that it should rain during all of my exams to prepare as easily as I did that day.
