Metaphors or not

Posted by Ken Starling on August 18, 2005

Hello everyone, for my homework I have a task in which I have to identify if these are metaphors or not. Could you please tell me which ones are metaphors, and which ones are not.

1. It's raining cats and dogs.
2. He's got a heart of stone.
3. I'm under the weather.
4. Keep a weather eye.
5. Pick up your ears.
