Raining cats & dogs,
heavens open, water pours...
searching for rainbows...
after three years of drought
we are catching up to our normal rainfall
here in Northern California...
Most of Rusty & Leo's life has been through dry Winters
so we are braving the weather twice a day for long walks
suited out in our rain gear...
I googled "raining cats & dogs"
and came up with all sorts of conflicting references,
mostly dating back to the 17th & 18th centuries.
which is supposedly NOT true,
is a reference to cats and dogs huddling up
in thatched roofs to keep warm and falling through,
thus the raining cats & dogs...
No roof tops for these pups!
They get a thorough toweling and a cuddle in front
of warm fire when we return home from our soaking-wet walking!
