We depend on water. Also for making whisky. Our bodies are made up of between 50 – 60% water. It is even higher in our brains, above 70% in fact. We are rather fortunate with the amounts of water we have and continually receive. It is indeed the inspiration for the name of the whisky; WATERPROOF.
It does rain a bit here and admittedly not all see it as a blessing, although it will not stop us talking about it. This means there are rather a lot of words describing different types of downpour.
Rain is simply the condensed moisture of the atmosphere falling in separate drops, though it does perhaps sometimes feel more like rods being tossed sideways. Please take a look below and perhaps discover more (and if you have words not on the list, please write to us on firstname.lastname@example.org)
