Just in case you ever wondered

I'm on a blog posting marathon and I received this information today from Mental Floss http://www.mentalfloss.com . Here in drought ridden Texas this really is useless information!

Who says size doesn't matter? It does to rain.
When precipitation takes the form of water droplets measuring half a millimeter (about 1/50ths of an inch) or less, it's called drizzle. Rain, on the other hand, is made up of drops of larger sizes. Furthermore, rain can be classified as slight (accumulations of 0.1 inches per hour or less), moderate (0.1 to 0.3 inches per hour), or heavy (0.3 inches per hour and more).

put on the coffee then call me and we will have a folding party. But I must warn you I won't turn things right side out. It has taken me years of therapy and Piles higher than yours to get to that point but it does save time and if at 12, 14, 16 and 43 years of age they can't do it themseleves whell then forget it! Oh ya, my pile is bigger because the smallest person in my family is 5 foot 6. what is kellianne whining about anyway we have one more kid than she does.

Yes but does your pile include a ant covered peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
