Arkansas rain has a plethora of undissolved solids in it - these come down out of the stratosphere after being ejected skyward by the TALL smokestacks in Harris County (Houston/Pasadena), Texas.
Regular ponchos are ineffective against these tiny pellets - you have to wear teflon-coated or old-fashioned neoprene. And if you don't believe me about the tiny rain pellets, just check out the Arkansas state website...
They're beautiful handsome machines that translate energy into joy.
