It was cloudy in the morning  but became rain.

They say today is a day of cats because of  meowing.  It was established in1987. It seems many countries have a day of cats but on different day. In Japanese they cry like nyan nyan nyan, and Feb. 22 is 2.22, and 2 is pronounced as "ni" and it sounds similar.  

The cry of animals or insects sounds different in Japan and other countries. For example in English dogs bark "bow wow" but in Japan we hear as "wan wan. " We like the chirping of bell crickets in the fall, but in other countries they are just noise.

It is interesting, isn't it?
