While we are on that subject...

When the rain would be pouring down on the garden in the back, my dad would gaze out the window and say to my mom, " Think the rain'll hurt the rhubarb?"

This continued for years after the garden was gone and caused quite a few giggles. Now I find myself looking out the same window and thinking it to myself...

Although rhubarb usually grows in the early spring, rain that we have had surely would have hurt the rhubarb.

Why yes, that make complete sense. Pouring rain is pouring rain. Having been so defined as "...hurt the rhubarb?" There is good reason to stay with the standard definition.
