En France, c'est une autre façon de dire qu'il pleut. Ce matin, il tombe des cordes. Il pleut comme vache qui pisse tout de suite là.

In France, as a rule of thumb you can say it always rains at Toussaint — All Saints Day, the first day of November. This year is no exception.
Heavy rains like this morning's often knock out our satellite TV signal.
So welcome to November. I shouldn't complain, because before the satellite signal went out I was watching reports on TéléMatin about all the destruction caused by this week's big storm in New Jersey. We will have a quiet, warm day, in our house, with the heat on. Hope you can too.
