Literary meme

Most recently seen on jennifer_dunne's blog (in this entry):

Rewrite "It was raining cats and dogs" in your voice (or the voice of an author you like). Feel free to chime in with your own version in the comments.

Of course, I can't resist making up a new scene for Manon (of Mysterious Paris):

Manon pressed her face to the glass door of the cafe. When she had entered, the sky had been the merely overcast gray flannel that hung over Paris every day in November. Now water coursed and sputtered relentlessly, as if hissing gray tabbies were being chased by terriers. Manon remembered gripping her mother's hand while a barking dog ran past.

She sighed, then pushed open the door.

In the voice of Nate Hannigan, PI...
        She took a drag on her cigarette, holding the gun steady, leveled right between my eyes. "You won't get any help, Hannigan. It's hell outside."
        I risked a look out the window - she was right, it was raining. Nothing gentle about it, either; the entire Atlantic Ocean was trying to fall on top of the city, all at once.
        No help coming, then. Shouldn't be a problem; all I had to do was get my hands untied - without her noticing, cross the room - without her noticing, and get the gun away from her.
        And then swim for it.
