Hi.
As we say it is raining cats and dog.
I wonder if we have similar idioms for snow, Does it sound weird to your ears if you hear someone say it is snowing cats and dogs.
Thank you

Yes, it sounds weird. Emotion: big smile

A combination of lots of wind and snow is a blizzard, but that's not really an idiom. I don't know any idioms for snow that are the equivalent of that idiom for rain.

Yes you could say it is Snowing cats and dogs. It would make sence to say that.
