So, in case that person was not alone in deprivation, here is what I said about the rain:

Lovely weather for ducks.

There was even a song about it, but I don’t know if the saying or the song came first. I suspect the saying did, but who knows?

Here’s the song, sung by fellow Kentuckian Rosemary Clooney, George’s. ..aunt, I believe.
