When I was about 10 years old our Dad would take my brother Chris and I along with him when he went trout fishing. One rainy Saturday along the Tuolumne River Dad taught us how to build a fire in the rain. He found a big overhanging rock and we got a fire going out in front of it. The heat reflected back off the big rock and we were warm and dry as toast. It rained all day and we had a great time.
