    storm or stormy?

    Dear all,

    In the dialogue below, is the use of "a storm" fine?
    Or would it better to say "stormy" rather than "a storm"?



    A: It was raining really hard last night.
    B: It was a storm. I couldn't sleep because it was so loud.

    Thank you!

    I am not a teacher.

    It depends on what you mean. Either one is good English.

    It's more natural to say "it was stormy."
