New Poll - Weather
This poll was suggested by StarlightDreams over 7 years ago. Why do all these weather conditions end with -y? This doesn't deal with temperature. It's just the weather conditions.

You can submit poll ideas here
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you like to imagine voices for manga characters (that don't yet have an anime adaptation)?
Choices:
No, I'm not that imaginative - votes: 1025 (23%)
No, this is not something that I enjoy doing - votes: 808 (18.1%)
Yes, and I like to use real-life voice actors / seiyuus as examples - votes: 309 (6.9%)
Yes, I like to imagine what they might generally sound like - votes: 2315 (51.9%)
There were 4457 total votes.
The poll ended: January 12th 2019

Dang, the majority of you have voices for your characters! I personally don't imagine voices for what I read. But if a movie comes out for it, subsequent re-reads will involve me thinking of those voices. Prime example is Harry Potter, as I read many of the books before the movies came out, but now I always have the voices of each actor in my head.

Ditto this, but add God rays to the picture. However, tropical is option.

Rainy. Heavy rain and darkness are the best. Going outside becomes an adventure and cities look like Blade Runner. As they should.

As long as it's not windy (I don't mind a breeze, mind you) or rainy (or worse: both), I don't particularly care. Well, I'm not too fond of fog, either, I guess.
(stormy falls under "windy". Also, hail and/or lightning falls under "rainy" )

Sunny. I live in a tropical country and love the weather (and temperature) here. Rainy/stormy/foggy days get me down, cos it's a hassle to even try to do anything productive during those days. I've never really thought of "windy" or "cloudy" as weather conditions, but as long as they don't reach hurricane levels or actually rain, respectively, I suppose they're tolerable. Never experienced snow, and don't want to, either. I've got a hectic schedule, I don't have time to be dealing with the weather on top of that!

I guess my windy isn't as strong as others' windy, I just live in a too mild location.

I love the snow. It's so beautiful, and you can hit people with it 😁

I like variety, having one too long I'll get bored of it. The main thing for me is it has to be warm. I love a warm summer rain or storm but cold and wet is no fun. Snow is the only one listed that I hate, the only way I can enjoy it is when I'm inside and warm looking out (but my job doesn't let stay home and winter driving is the worst).

Stormy. I'm in the minority this time. I just really like thunders. They are dangerous, but they are also extremely fascinating to me. Whenever it starts to get stormy, I sit by the window to enjoy the natural show. It's so relaxing.

I voted sunny but it's more like the early spring kind of sunny, when the weather is still cool.


Although taking a stroll on the coast in stormy weather is really nice.

Partly cloudy is my jam.

Sunny. Like the type during autumn.
Woulda say Snowy, but it never snows here. Hail at most which is no good and characteristically different. Duh!

Sunny 100%!! I understand after reading the replies why people picked other options, but yeah. I'm a backpacker and precipitation, wind, low ceilings, etc. get old really quick when there are no buildings to retreat into and/or they're hiding the scenery.

I drive to work facing east. Drive home facing west. I hate the sun in my eyes when driving. Even with sunglasses the rays find a way to get in to my eyes. I really feel like Shinya Arino with his "to hell with the sun" on those days. I prefer mostly cloudy, rainy, snowy days.

Cloudy. I like that the best.
sunny weather is hot. rain would make going out a pain. same with storm. windy will make dirt, leaves and more things fly around dirtying your clothes and whatever you're carrying. snow... I never saw snow directly, but I think snow would be a real pain. fog is dangerous, I don't hate fog but it's still dangerous.

Oh yeah, a sunny day in the snow, while it's -20 degrees Celsius...
...
None of the poll options (except foggy, I guess? Not sure about that), have anything to do with how hot/cold it is.
(also, there is no mention of humidity. I hate humidity. I hate it, when it's hot and humid)

WTF are you talking about?
I'd image that maybe happening, if it's stormy, but...

Not really.
The cold can be a pain (I'm not too bothered by it, but...), but the snow itself...
It's no bother, at all.
Ice on the ground is a pain, but that's not weather, per say.

well, I live near the equator, so sunny weather is hot.
and, could it be that there is no dirt and leaves on the side of the road near your place? so there's no dirt and leaves flying around with wind? if it's a gentle wind, sure it's nice, but even your laundry will fly when hit by strong wind.

Whether or not it is hot, has nothing to do with whether or not it is sunny.
Regardless of where you live.
Clouds can make it colder, or hotter, for various reasons
...but the temperature is effected far more, by other factors.

Any wind, that would make dirt and leaves fly around in the wind (or make you worried about your laundry), would have to be at least a gale ...which is just one step below a storm (and "stormy" is a separate option, from "windy" )
