It’s Raining Cats & Dogs

We’ve had a very wet spring here in Minneapolis and it reminds me of the old expression Raining Cats and Dogs... Most Popular theory holds that in old England, they had hay roofs on their houses and the cats and dogs would sleep on the roof. When it rained, the roofs got slippery and the cats and dogs would slide off of the roofs. Therefore, it was “Raining Cats and Dogs”. Here’s some fun and fitting rain related finds…
