A logical explanation for the squirmy rain has emerged online.
An inflorescence is a cluster of flowers.
“When poplar flower spikes start to fall, it means that they are about to bloom,” the user said.
The explanation has been flagged as context to the original viral tweet.
Videos of the phenomenon have wracked up hundreds of thousands of views online, with many in the comments pointing out the logical explanation.
But that hasn’t stopped viewers from stating it’s their “worst nightmare”.
“Nah I’d never leave the house again,” one person commented on a TikTok about the incident.
“Going outside??? Hell no,” said another.
Many comments echoed this sentiment, with one person saying “I would neverrrr leave my housee” while another simply said “I would cry”.
