Default Rain

I've just come in from walking my two dogs (Irish Setters) and while I was out it started to rain.
Only we can't just be content by saying it "was raining" we have to describe what type of rain it was (must be a British thing).

Rain can be:
a drizzle
spotting
spitting
raining cats and dogs
pouring down (afterwards it becomes a downpour)
lashing down
even a term named after a toilet function

I suppose that in the end it was raining and I got wet . . .

drenched
soaked to the skin
etc
