It's raining , it's pouring, the old man is snoring

It feels like it's been raining here forever in the deep South of France. My children are learning a new vocablary in English ( drizzle, fog, lashing rain, pissing out of the heavens, shitty weather, raining cats and dogs, etc ) Jumping in puddles and welly wearing is SUCH GREAT FUN!!!! Especially if you're only doing for one or two weeks of the year!
It's been about two weeks now of heavy rain and I know we shouldn't complain after our fab Indian summer in September and October, but we've had enough now, you can stop, my kids vocablary is complete.

Interesting to know the french terms for wet weather as well. Whereas not as versed as we Irish are in all things humid, they say :

Il pleut comme une vache qui pisse ( it's raining like a cow pissing)
Temps de merde
Il pleut des grenouilles ( it's raining frogs )
Il fait un temps à ne pas mettre un chien dehors (the weathers too bad to put a dog outside)
Il pleut des cordes ( it's raining like ropes)

Anyone know any others?
