alexz commented on the word Liddisdale drow
From the Dictionary of Lowland Scotch
"Liddisdale drow Liddisdale dew the fine rain that is said not to wet a Scotsman but that drenches an Englishman to the skin Jamieson defines drow to mean a cold mist heavy with rain also a squall or severe gust and derives the word from the Gaelic drag the motion of the sea which however is not to be found in Gaelic dictionaries Brow is from the Gaelic druchd with the elision of the guttural signifying dew hence the Liddisdale joke "
