A meter is just shy of a foot, so roughly 18 inches.

Washingtonchou,

1 yard (or 36") are 91.44 cm
one foot = 12 X 2.54 = 30.48 cm
1 meter is 39.70 inches, roughly 10% more than 1 yrd.
In the old days Germany had measuremnt called "Elle". They measured from elbow to wrist which was
appr one foot (give or take and depending how large the person was. It was a primitive measure).
For someone not familiar with metric it can get confusing but metric is actually very simple.
Have to go and shut off the canner, am canning hoemade chicken stock.

gre lo, I swear, you are the only American that doesn't hate metric, and admits that it is pretty simple. Wish others were willing to give it a try, it really is the universal measurment.

I can't believe I said "meter." That's what I get for doing 10 things at once I guess.
