    Against a rainy day

    Hi, there!

    Do you often use the idiom "against a rainy day" to mean "just in case"?
    This expression is very popular in English textbooks, but as far as I remember, I've never heard it in authentic English.

    Thank you!

    Rainy day
    If you save something, especially money, for a rainy day, you save it for some possible problem or trouble in the future.
