Mh, haven't tried traveling yet. Should definately give it a try. ^^
About being alone... I actually live alone. Doesn't help me much.
Mostly when I feel down I just go over to my brother's and let him cheer me up.
Rain... you've got a point there, rain does help... But then again, gray skies depress me.
So... best would be a hot day in summer... the weather changes and there is this huge thunderstorm, everyone on the streets gets totally soaked by the rain... and after about 15 minutes, the rain stops and the clouds move, so the sun comes back up. That really doesn't happen very often though.
And lucky you for having a caring husband, I'm sure he does his best to help
