Now not too much. We (at least where i live anyway) have lots of days without rain then we have a little rain or heavy rain that does not last a long time. Rain that last a long time is now rare. I do not hear about droughts happening here so not a lot of rain does not seem like a negative thing.
The big difference from when I was young is snow. Here before October we would have a lot of snow and now when we arrive in December it is not rare to still see grass in some or most places.
