    Default "Llueve a cantaros"

    Me gustaría saber de donde viene la esta expresión que usamos cuando llueve mucho: "llueve a cantaros".
    Alguién tiene idea?

    Porque un cantaro es un recipiente, imaginate una olla, y cuando llueve muy fuerte parece que te tiraran cubetazos de agua porque si lo das vuelta no caen gotas, sino chorros. Es como decir, "llueve a baldazos".
