One thing I remember from a kid was hearing the rain at night and the wind whistling through the edges of the windows. It was somewhat exciting, almost imparting it's energy to my enthusiasm. With the advent of double glazing though not only do we not get ice on the inside of the windows (how exciting that was as a kid) but we seem to have lost the nightly sound show. But this is not all bad though, at least we are warm at night and the noise of traffic has gone away. If I ever get around to designing and building my own home I am going to have a room or two that deliberately allows the sound of the rain to come through.
