Default Weather Rain and Thunderstorms

How do you feel about the sound of the rain pouring down hitting your coach roof? Do you enjoy the sound of the rain falling and thunderstorms? I don't mind it but the wife doesn't like it and finds it's hard for her to sleep. She said she tossed and turned all night. I feel bad because we are in for more rain and thunderstorms tonight. We may hit the road in the morning, I think it's time for a new view.

Have the wife try some foam ear plugs. When Fran's daughter Valerie stays at our house she uses them to keep my snoring from waking her up. Yes I snore loudly on occasion! She stays in guest room on the other end of the house.

That's an idea thanks Clint. She said at this point she'll try anything. And now I'm off to make a quick run to get her some. I'm assuming I can find them at Walmart or a Walgreens?

Yes should be no problem finding them at either place.

I'm one of those who enjoy the sound of rain and thunderstorms. It's soothing and I can fall right to sleep.

I agree, I love the sound of rain on a tin roof, lived in a house that had one, slept like a baby during rainstorms. Wife, not so much.

Who needs a clock that makes rain sounds when you can have the real thing?

Ear plugs should do the trick. Hope your wife gets some sleep.
