Those rainy days, even during summer, don't have to be too much of a drag. Just think about it — you can wear your favorite pair of cute polka dot rain boots and post artsy pictures walking along the city sidewalks. With all of the downtime rain seems to provide — especially on the weekend — you can sift through captions for rainy days and pick one that truly summarizes your current situation.
Yeah, it kind of sucks waking up and seeing the sky pouring down rain when you're hoping for sunshine, but it's good for the Earth, and there are still a ton of things you can get done. Besides, you loved jumping into puddles as a kid, and if you can conjure up even a little bit of that can-do attitude, you're in for a splash during your rainy day.
To be honest, Mother Nature always looks so refreshed and renewed after a little bit of rain. Once the showers finish, rainbows are painted across the sky, and you realize that the rain wasn't really the end of all things fun, but the beginning of something beautiful.
Don't be that person who lets the day pass them by because there's rain outside. Spread those good vibes while you literally weather the storm, and let these 23 captions take part in drawing your silver lining.
