"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

"'There's nothing wrong with Novi,' he insisted as firmly as he could. 'Mira and George ... they're uninhibited, that's all.'
'˜It's a storm in a teacup,' Camille agreed, folding her arms." ("Watercolours")




a storm in a teacup (British & Australian) - a situation where people get very angry or worried about something that is not important


I think it's all a storm in a teacup - there's probably no danger to public health at all. (Cambridge Idioms Dictionary)
"The world was a fantastic, marvelous, awesome place, Rose decided."

    When you get a healthy result from you last Annual Physical Exam, I can say that it's not a storm in a cup.
