Lover of Words - VIRGA

As a lover of words and old dictionaries, here is a word to ponder today! Because of surprises yesterday, the wind, the hail, the thunder, the rain and wow the temp drop, today we "may" have VIRGA.

I am waiting to see! Sometimes you can see the rain in the clouds and where it is falling, however, sometimes you can't! An interesting word that sometimes sparks neat conversation! Try it! :P =^.^=

Virga
–noun ( used with a singular or plural verb ) Meteorology .
streaks of water drops or ice particles falling out of a cloud and evaporating before reaching the ground ( distinguished from praecipitatio).
