It is a wired world in Lancaster,Ohio and we do sometimes have neat skies and clouds.
Or is it a weird world? Have you every had a cloud direct a spray of water at you then disappear? Tom D'Ercole 1975, in Oyster Bay, New York.
Sometimes a cumulus cloud will pass over a town and rain down dead insects.This happened in Hutchinson, Minnesota as reported in 1932 issue of Science.
Same sky different perspective. Sometimes clouds will rain down seeds. This happened in Macerata, Italy 1897. The seeds came from a tree found only in central Africa and the Antilles.
Sometimes in drought conditions irate farmers have seen small planes fly into clouds eject “chemicals” and then watch the rain clouds just disappear.A sinister conspiracy.
I wonder why they run a power line right thru a tree. Maybe to make it easier for the squirrels. (not really the case but it looks like it). It started in the 1940’s, cigar shaped clouds or cigar or saucer shapes in clouds. The aliens have arrived.
That’s what the sky looks like from the perspective of a corn tassel. Now I will tell you what is strange,all the above pictures were taken in my backyard in August in Ohio. We just don’t get clear blue skies like that with white puffy clouds in the middle of summer.
So I think I will go golfing
