pulled the door to

No. If we're pushing a door to, we use "push the door to" or "close the door to".
. . .
2. To shove, thrust, or press something shut. A noun or pronoun is used between "push" and "to."
Push that door to—you're letting in a draft!
It's not quite the same as shutting the door, in the way I've always heard it used.
Most doors have a lock or latch which engages when the door is fully shut. You have to press the handle or turn the knob to open it again.
If you "close the door
", you close it only to the point at which it's not quite latched.
It's not fully closed.
I don't think it means "against the force of the rain" - if you shut the door to, having to push against the wind & rain, it would just open again.
It must mean "keeping out the rain".
6. as a protection from or means of defence from the adverse effects of:
a safeguard against contaminated water.
The way it's written, the door opened outwards and the writer had to pull it closed.

Yeah - not quite the same impact.
