Rainy Weekend

So far it has been another rainy weekend (“ein verregnetes Wochenende!”). It’s raining ‘Cats and Dogs’ so to speak. And this after it had been quite wet for most of last week. Well, maybe tomorrow, Sunday, is going to be a bit better. πŸ™‚

      1. Good question, Linda. This must be an Australian expression for ‘it’s pouring a real lot’. Sorry, I don’t think Germans have a similar expression. ‘Katzen und Hunde’ ? No, Germans would be very surprised to hear it was raining ‘Katzen und Hunde’!

      2. It’s an expression in the US, too. So I figure it’s an English (UK) idiom as it’s shared by Americans and Aussies.

        Then, again, it could have been exported to you during WWII when a lot of Americans were there; my Dad included. It was his favorite place during the war… but then again, he was also based in New Guinea and carious South Pacific islands much of the time. He got R and R in Australia mostly in Queensland and the Northern Territory. His favorite song was “Waltzing Matilda”. He was a young Lieutenant bomber pilot then, so I figure he got around a bit. (I might have relatives there as a result! LOL)

  1. Sounds like your Dad did get around a bit, “Waltzing Matilda” is one of my favourite songs too. Thanks, Devon, for the comment. In Sydney today the rain at times came down very heavily again! Maybe it was a bit more than cats and dogs even. πŸ™‚
