Nice weather for ducks

Oh dear, another wet weekend. This month's weather has been very disappointing, that is, unless you are a duck.

For some reason, in Britain when it rains a lot, (most of the time) we say, 'nice weather for ducks!'

I don't know if there is any scientific basis for this because I've never asked a duck.

The last time I lived in England, I lived near Carlisle in the north of England. In 2005 it just rained and rained, the rivers burst their banks and the city was totally flooded. Still, it was nice weather ducks!
