"Quite regularly, as a home inspector, I see run-of-the-mill "bad" popping
up. Occasionally "that was really dumb" makes an appearance. But you know
you are in rare air when "Hall of Fame Stupid" presents itself. Now, gentle
reader, is one of those times."
Seem to remember from elementry school every raindrop has a spec of
something besides the water.
SEATTLE - Ms. Sablan's kindergarten class at Seattle Hill Elementary
wanted to know if rain has dirt in it.
Rain usually doesn't have dirt in it per se, but mainly will have tiny
dust or pollen -- or even salt particles in it.
It's the dust particles that the water droplets stick to up in the clouds
that create a raindrop. As the raindrop picks up more and more coatings
of water from the surrounding water vapor, it'll be come larger and
larger, until it's heavy enough to fall to the ground.
It's a good thing that we do have dust and other tiny particles in the
air. If the air was super clean and didn't have any of those particles,
it wouldn't be able to rain.
