We tend to forget that rain can also be fun! A nice children’s poem describes that well:
Dežek pada cele dni,
še ponoči nam rosi,
in namaka luže tri.
V prvi luži žabica,
v drugi luži račkica,
v tretji luži sem pa jaz-
vsi kričimo na ves glas!
(Disclaimer: a horrible literal translation, but fortunately you are here to learn Slovenian, not to study poetry!
It is raining for many (lit. whole) days,
even in the
filling up three puddles.
A (little) frog in the first puddle,
A duckie in the second,
and me in the third-
we all scream our heads off!
