Precipitation

Do you know where the least rainy place on earth is?

You might think it’s desert, but it’s not. It’s actually Antarctica, which is one of the driest places on earth, getting about two inches of rain or snow each year. On the other hand, the most rainy area in the world is Lloro, Colombia in South America and gets over 500 inches a year.
 
Rain’s technical name is precipitation, including hail, sleet and snow. Rain starts high in the clouds as snow or ice crystals and a single droplet can float around within the cloud for up to 10 days. When a raindrop finally falls, it can travel to the Earth at speeds of 22 miles an hour. On the other hand, a snowflake slowly floats through the sky at about 3 miles per hour, taking about an hour to reach the ground. Some places on earth get very little rain, while others get a lot, and every single spot on the earth gets some kind of rain due to God’s faithfulness to provide for all living things.
