Dropping like flies

Posted by Sharon Tobey on January 01, 2011 at 20:57

Just searched "dropping like flies" because today is exceptionally warm (50 in Gorham, Maine on 1/1/11) and although a large number of flies have shown up in my apartment, they are falling dead from the ceiling through no action of mine. Thought someone might like to know as that phrase doesn't list an exact derivation. Maybe a weather-related phenomenon?
