RARA-AVIS: Way Off-Topic

Sorry for the off-topic post, but I'll keep it short, and I know the rara-avians know all kinds of things. A friend who teaches adult literacy has asked me to identify a short story for her. She read it long ago and remembers little about it. She classified it as science fiction, and says it's about a planet where it practically never rains. A girl gets excited because it's about to rain, but is tormented by others for her excitement, eventually ending up locked in a closet (or something) and missing the whole thing.

Ring any bells for anyone?

And speaking of hard-boiled sci-fi (which I really wasn't, I know, but work with me here), I recently picked up the two Sam Space novels by Nolan. Anyone ever read these? Are they worth my time?
