Hey We Love Weather peeps! I just published a rather long article about one of my favorite topics…. the origin story of various popular weather phrases. If you’ve ever wondered if there is any truth to the saying, “red sky at night, sailor’s delight,” if you’ve ever wondered why we say it’s raining cats and dogs, or if you question why you are under the weather when you’re sick, I’ve got all the answers! I’d love to hear your thoughts and other weather phrases and folklore you have loved through the years!!! https://weloveweather.tv/explanation-behind-12-common-weather-phrases/
My friend and I have always said when theres a “good” rain storm…”it’s pouring bullfrogs”! Also, I fully believe that when theres a red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning! For the most part, im pretty sure that the saying “holds water”.
I’ve heard that variation with frogs before too! The reason I was once given was that it rains so hard that frogs can’t jump out of it and drown so frogs start washing down the road!!! I love frogs so that one was too dark for my taste. Haha. Thanks for writing in!
