“I don’t know if I just got hit by freezing rain, but it hurt like hail”

"Hurts like hail” sounds like “hurts like hell.” “Frozen rain, when it hits you, hurts like hail” was published in a 1987 newspaper.

“I don’t know if I just got hit by freezing rain, but it hurt like hail” was posted on the website Pun of the Day on June 29, 2017.

The saying has been printed on several images.


10 June 1987, Springville (UT) Herald, “That’s Life: Fillers” by Roger Sturman, pg. 2, col. 2:
Frozen rain, when it hits you, hurts like hail.

4 February 2000, Atlanta (GA) Constitution, “The Vent Selective invective,” pg. D2:
Snow is wet, but frozen rain hurts like hail.
