a (real) toad-strangler

A particularly heavy or torrential downpour of rain. (Chiefly heard in the southern United States.) Primarily heard in US. It's a real toad-strangler out there today—looks like we'll have to have our barbecue another day. There's no way I'm biking to work in a toad-strangler like this!
