Hi, can I have a synonym for the underlined expression:
The rain came in pants of intensity.
To me also... that's why I'm asking for help! Thank you anyway
"The rain came in bursts of intensity," would be the best way to say this, I think.
Your original phrase does make a kind of poetic sense, though! Rain can sometimes make a kind of breathing noise when it falls harder and then more softly. Perhaps that's what you had in mind.
