It rained quite a lot in the boy’s town. He liked the rain. He enjoyed watching it drip down windows by day and hearing it on the roof by night. As he was quite interested in words he had put rain in his thesaurus on the computer and printed out all the results. He decided to tick them off as he saw them. Here are the ones he had seen to date: deluge, drizzle, hail, mist, pelting, pouring, sheets and spitting. What he was really exited about though was ticking off Cats and Dogs.
