What is it that they say … “When it rains, it pours

According to the Chicago Tribune:

A wall collapsed at the Morton Salt building in Goose Island Tuesday afternoon, spilling salt over cars at an Acura dealership but causing no injuries, officials said.

The collapse occurred shortly after 2 p.m. on the side of a long building near Potomac and Elston avenues that carries the Morton Salt slogan, “When it Rains it Pours,” fire officials said.
