It's Raining, It's Pouring

You know the phrase, "It's snowing today"?  Or "It's really windy outside"?  What's the IT??  Is "IT" the outside world?  Is it the clouds that are raining, or the sky?  It's sunny... that means the atmosphere is sunny, right?  It's warm... the air is warm?
I'm sure there's a concrete answer for this and I'm just that much more stupid for missing it, but my point here is that there are things that we say every day and we never think about what exactly we are saying.  This is just a chance for you to stop and ponder about the English language.

Listening to:  Ella Fitzgerald, "Anything Goes"
Things Going on Today:  First FHE of the Semester, dinner group
Blessings:  Getting out early from ASL, fast days at work, sunshine
