We also used to say "Once every Sheffield flood", but that seems to have lost its meaning lately, as that city gets its share of the heavy weather we're experiencing.

Thanks, Jemmy. Despite doing my PGCE at Sheffield University I've never heard that phrase. As you say, Sheffield floods are probably not that rare these days!

Love to read this article about blue moon. Although 'once in a blue moon' means 'very rarely', in fact, a blue moon is not that rare.
