Definition of rainfall

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Horseshoe:

Well, very simply put...the amount of water from the sky falling to the ground. Recorded rainfall is usually measured in either inches or centimeters. It is widely believed by some (not me) that most garden crops should receive one inch of rain per wk.)

Definition as written by Lophophora:

Something longed for in its lack, and cursed in its surfeit. Kinda like "spare time"...

Definition as written by kipling:

In the metric system 1mm. of rain per sq. metre equals 1 litre. Therefore. for example, 1 inch (25mm) of rain is equivalent to 25 litres per sq. metre or 6.6 gallons (US) or 5.5 gallons (UK) !!!
