We sit in the sukkah to commemorate the clouds that Hashem protected us with when we left Egypt. What does the High Holiday season have to do with clouds? Water, representing our physicality, evaporates in the sunlight of spirituality until it becomes a refined mist. Then we start the cycle all over again on a higher level with the Prayer for Rain on Shemini Atzeres. (Based on 4th Night of Sukkos 5750 in Hisva'aduyos 5750 vol. 1 pp. 163-4.)
