Raining Cats and Dogs
I didn’t expect this
kind of weather. It’s raining cats and dogs and I forgot my
umbrella. Needless to say, I’m going to get soaked on my way home. Hopefully I
won’t catch a cold!
Looks like we have to reschedule
the picnic. Forecasters predict really heavy rains this weekend. We won’t have
any fun in the park if it’s raining cats and dogs!
cats and dogsis a playful expression to describe very heavy rain.
This expression is usually used with “it.”
