Raining = something falling from the sky? Something green? classic rain? Raining water? Is the sentence coming before relevant? Does something happen when something is raining green? Just when it is raining green?

Green = a substance? A paint? A natural phenomenon?

Is it limited to a certain area? Is it sonething artificially made? Maybe in a building? Can it happen also outside? Is the green color given by sonething or the thibgs that fall are naturally green? Is there sonething that made the rain appear green?

Is it limited to a certain area? Yessish. Is it sonething artificially made? No. Maybe in a building? Can it happen also outside? It happens mostly outside, but could sometimes occur inside a building. Is the green color given by sonething or the thibgs that fall are naturally green? Things are naturally green. Is there sonething that made the rain appear green? The rain itself does not appear green, but something does 'rain' from the sky (apparently) that is green.

It is like an optical illution? Something evaporating that seems to fall from the sky?

Does it happens mostly in woods? Is the green color given by something? Things that fall = animals? Insects?

Lizards? Chamaleon? Iguana? This.

**********************SPOILER***************
Florida is having a 'plague' of iguanas falling from trees. Being cold-blooded, they become torpid when the temperature falls into the low 50s, and many fall asleep right where they are, which may be up in a tree. When either the weather warms up a little, or they loose their grip, they may fall out of the tree. As they can be up to 6 feet long, this can be painful or at least shocking to anyone standing under that tree.

I think I must have iguana DNA, as I become torpid when the temp falls to the low 50s. But I don't hang out in trees.

Congrats, Earnest!
