I like this word. Now all I have to do is figure out the difference between a light rain and a drizzle. ~ Connie

It is a Middle English term meaning light rain or drizzle. Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.

  1. Hi, Connie. According to the definition, a light rain is a drizzle is a mizzle. Gotta wonder why they need so many words to mean the same thing. Silly people.

  2. Thank you! I agree with you about too many words for the same thing. Maybe that’s why mizzle dropped out of favor. For some reason this tickles me and I hope to find a character who can use this.
