The meaning of rainforest

After going to bed before 10 last night (which is in itself a record), I was woken numerous times by the rain. At times, it fell so hard it was disconcerting to hear as I wondered if the roof would hold.

It continued to rain, unabated, all day. There were moments of harder and less hard rain, but it kept falling till around 3 in the afternoon, spit for an hour or two, was dry and lighter for another hour, then starting raining again. Now, at 8:00 pm, it sounds like it's not raining. Nevertheless, that's a mighty lot of rain. You start to think it will never end. The girls just laughed when I kept looking out the window saying, "I can't believe it's still raining!" "It's called a rainforest for a reason," they said.
