Raining Cats and Dogs

It’s been raining the past couple days. Hard. Like rivers in the street kind of hard. 

Has anyone ever actually seen it raining cats and dogs? What a strange expression. Here in Patagonia, when it rains cats and dogs, the cats and dogs are all smart enough to take a long nap (if they are lucky enough to live with my friend Ruth, that is). 

Except Gaucho...he feels like he needs to live up to his name and keep busy all the time. 
If you’re not a cat or dog, you can find shelter under a gigantic nalca leaf (nalca is a wild rhubarb plant that grows in the rainforest areas) like this adorable little troll (actually, the troll is 6’3”, just to give you an idea of how big the nalca leaves really are).

Can't believe the size of that leaf! I would love to see one of those in person.
