Highlight a row if a cell contains certain text.

in response to the comment by holymak...
In response to your query about an example.
Rather than a separate formula for each word ,I was after a single formula with multiple words:
E.g. Rather than =("rain"........)  would it be possible for
=("rain","United","wet"......)
Your formula works well but I have to write a conditional format for each word( which means hundreds of formulas).I want to be able to conditional formal rows that contain either of a number of words to be coloured a specific colour.
So if a row contains either " rain" and or "wet" and or "united" etc then that row would be a specific colour.
Any idea?
