A long time colleague and friend sent this to me. It’s answers kids gave to a St.
Louis, Missouri elementary school teacher when asked about different weather events. This is a nice break from politics. I think it’s from the 1989 Old Farmer’s Almanac.
The wind is like air, only pushier.
It is so hot in some parts of the world that the inhabitants there have to live somewhere else.
Rain is saved up in cloud banks.
Humidity is the experience of looking for air and finding rain.
The main value of tornadoes is yet to be discovered.
You can listen to thunder after lightning and tell how close you came to getting hit. If you don’t hear it, you got hit, so never mind.
Meteorologists look something like people. (This is my favorite.)
In order to have different seasons, we had to get the earth tilted over on its axis. But it has been worth it.
When lightning goes through them, clouds start making sounds. So would anybody.
