Gmail Tree theme adds water droplets when it rains heavily

It's raining so heavily now and my Gmail Tree theme changes its look:

For a second I thought that those are real water droplets on my screen since they weren't there when it started raining (the water droplets appeared when it changes from drizzle to rainstorm while the raining background was already there when the rain started).

I like little touches like this :)

    I was wondering why that theme required my location. Originally I thought the background would change to night when it got late, but this is even cooler.

  6. James: Yeah I wondered about that too. I think your idea of day and night themes is good too! Google should implement that :P

    Cool theme. I use something similar but for my browser. It tells the forecast and changes design with what the weather is doing outside. So cool. http://gallery.brandthunder.com/en-US/theme/weather
