How Much Does the Rainy Season Weigh?

 During a recent conversation someone asked how much it rains on the east coast of Nicaragua?  We talked about the difference between the rainy season (a whole lot of rain) and the dry season (still some rain).  I was informed some smart people had actually calculated the weight of a cloud.  So I had to check that out.

The clouds building up during the day provide some beautiful landscapes.

So if you didn't want to click the link above a cloud weighs " about 500,000 kilograms or 1.1 million pounds (about 551 tons) ".
