Pluviophile - a lover of rain and rainy weather. Of which I am.

Alternatively - Acquiesce. Verb. To acquiesce to someone is to assent to their wishes tacitly; that is, silently or without complaint.

Joel acquiesced halfheartedly to the plan; he knew better than to argue.
Remember how far you've come; not just how far you have to go.
