    Default Rain falling

    Is it correct to write
    1. The rain is falling heavily.
    2. The rain is falling from the sky.

    Thanks for helping.

    2. The rain is falling from the sky. Yes, but where else would the rain fall from? It is a correct grammatical, meaningful sentence - just not very useful.
