Meteorology

I am so sorry I didn’t do a post yesterday but I caught a fever and I was in bed all day so I didn’t have the chance and I wanted to make sure I did one today. On a nicer note, my family have just booked a holiday to Majorca so I will make sure I keep you updated about the holiday when I go.

If you are a meteorologist or you are into meteorology this will be a good post for you. Here are some facts about meteorology that you probably didn’t know:

  • Heavy rain pours down at the rate of about 20 miles per hour.
  • The water we drink is three billion years old.
  • All snow crystals are hexagonal.
  • On 17 July 1841, a shower of hail and rain in Derby was accompanied by a fall of hundreds of small frogs and fish – some were even still alive.
  • An ordinary raindrop falls at about 7 miles per hour.
  • Small clouds that look like they have broken off from bigger clouds are called scubs.
  • It would take seven billion particles of fog to fill a teaspoon.
  • A cubic mile of fog is made up of less than a gallon of water.
  • A snowflake can take up to an hour to land.
  • One centimetre of rain is equal to ten centimetre of snow.
  • On 14 August 1979, a rainbow over north whales lasted for three hours.
  • To see a rainbow you need to have your back to the sun.

Fact of the day:If you went unprotected into space, you would explode before you suffocated.

Joke of the day: Technically if you don’t cut a cake and just eat the whole thing with a fork you still only had one piece.

Riddle of the day: Poor people have it, rich people need it. And if you eat it you will die. What is it?

If you know the answer to the riddle leave it in the comments. Also drop a like if you enjoyed reading this post and want me to write more like this one. Remember to tell me in the comments if you liked the joke I have put up for you today.
