** Several stories, including "All Summer in a Day" and "The Long Rain", depict humans living on a Venus that is much like Earth except for the incessant rain, having been written when little was known about Venus except that it was a similar size to Earth and completely covered by clouds. It's since been discovered that Venus's cloud cover is not composed of water but sulfur dioxide, and furthermore that due to the resulting greenhouse effect Venus has the highest surface temperatures of any planet in the solar system -- anybody who tried to set foot on Venus would be incinerated in moments, long before they had time to get depressed by the precipitation. (This makes "The Long Rain", in which a group of astronauts stranded out in the endless downpour long for the warmth of one of many "Sun-Domes" that provide shelter and ''warmth'', particularly amusing in hindsight.)

* VenusIsWet:
** "The Long Rain" is set on Venus, where it rains constantly.
-->It was a hard rain, a perpetual rain, a sweating and steaming rain; it was a mizzle, a downpour, a fountain, a whipping in the eyes, an undertow at the ankles; it was a rain to drown all rains and the memory of rains.
** In "All Summer in a Day", the planet Venus has constant rain, except for a one-hour period each seven years.
