31 ways English people say it’s raining

Hello world,

This has been in my draft for ages, and I’m really tired and I was just looking through my drafts hoping somewhere there was a halfway decent post. And there was (I think.), so here we go! 31 ways English people say it’s raining.

  1. It’s raining (how inventive)
  2. It’s pouring (and the old man is snoring. Please say someone understands that)
  3. It’s absolutely tipping it down.
  4. What a fine day it is today.
  5. The clouds are crying.
  6. God is crying.
  7. I blame bad people for the weather.
  8. Uuuugggghhhh.
  9. I was going to go shopping today…
  10. It’s wet outside.
  11. Plip plop plip plop. (You have to say this whilst looking out the window or people might think you’re weird and call the police)
  12. *goes outside* I’M SINGING IN THE RAIN. JUST SINGING IN THE RAIN! WHAT A GLORIOUS FEELING I’M HAPPY AGAIN.
  13. Can we watch TV now?
  14. It may or may not be raining outside.
  15. Would you like to go for a walk?
  16. Oooooohh rainbows.
  17. WHY ARENT THERE RAINBOWS?
  18. Do you think I could go outside?
  19. ย It’s tippling it down (yes, some people actually use this)
  20. It’s raining cats and dogs.
  21. It’s pelting it down
  22. It’s luttering it down
  23. It’s siling it down
  24. It’s plothering it down
  25. It’s raining stair-rods (to be honest I’m not entirely sure what a stair-rod is but I’ve heard it being used, so….)
  26. It’s raining chair legs (um okay)
  27. It’s raining like a cow relieving itself (yes I know I know it’s very weird but believe it or not I have heard it being used. Apparently it comes from French (il pleut comme vache qui pisse) That’s what I learned when I questioned that person about it. Still, there are no excuses. )
  28. It’s chucking it down.
  29. It’s raining old women. (Very sexist.)
  30. It’s raining pocket knives (Portuguese)
  31. It’s raining frogs’ beards (also Portuguese)

Aaaaaannnnnddd there we go. That was so much harder than I expected.

Anyway,

Love you all!

Bye,
