On long car trips we would pass factories whose tall stacks continuously steamed and smoked. I was sure these were cloud factories!
I told my kids that the huge chimneys at the power station were cloud machines. Travelling past one day, the sky was blue and the first chimney wasn't smoking (strange coincidence?), but a few miles up the road and the sky began to cloud over. You guessed it, the second chimney was smoking. So, my little story became their belief, until I fessed up and told them the truth!
My lovely older brothers convinced me that the factories with the gross polution coming out of the chimneys were the "cloud-making" buildings and they make clouds and shoot them into the air. I would get really worried if I saw a chimney with no smoke coming out because I thought the clouds would not be able to be made and then the sun would fall down and crush me and my stuffed animals.
i live near a chemical plant with two cooling towers (which always have steam coming out of the top), and when i was younger i used to think that the purpose of the factory was to make clouds. i also thought that aeroplanes were responsible for making clouds.
I used to belive that clouds are made in a factory!
When I was wee little, my Aunt K told me that the smoke stacks in my home town made the clouds. The sad part is, I believed it until I was 12.
When my sister Elsa was little, whenever we drove past the power plant, where there was always smoke coming out the smokestacks, she thought that the power plant was the "cloud factory", and that was its sole purpose was to make clouds, otherwise there would be none.
Going to my Grandmothers, we would always pass a huge factory that had tons of smoke pouring out from it. I though it was a cloud making machine.
i used to believe that the things in factories that blew the smoke out into the air were cloud makers .. god, i was a stupid kid
When I was little, I believed that clouds came from paper mills.
There is a factory in my town that emitts a lot of white steam. Everytime my family would drive by, my sister and I would exclaim "Look! It's the cloud factory!" We really believed that the factory made clouds.
when my family would be driving down a major highway, we would pass these factories that would let out this cloudy stuff. my mom would tell me "they are cloud makers"...little did i know it was pollution :)
I used to belive that the cooling towers at power plants were "the cloud makers" and that if it was a clear day they were slacking off.
sometimes my family would drive by big factories with pollution billowing out of them. i thought they were cloud factories, and whenever there was a drought, they'd just produce some clouds, so it would rain!
When i was 3 or 4 my aunt told me that pollution coming out of smoke stacks at factorys was "Cloud Machines". Iwas very gullible.
I used to belive that the smoke stacks on paper mills, were cloud factorys.I still wonder...
I used to believe that smoke stacks from buildings the expelled white smoke were cloud making facilities, and when I would ride past one I would watch them to see how many clouds they made in the sky.
When I was about 6 I thought that the smoke comin out of like paper mills was what clouds were.
as a child, i lived by the city (chicago), so whenever we would drive into the city, i would see the gigantic smoke stacks puring steam, smoke, smog, carcinogens, etc. into the air. i believed that thoses things put clouds in the air, like a kind of cloud machine.
I used to believe that the oil refineries near my house were really "cloud making factories." This seemed reasonable, I lived in Los Angeles near the ocean, the smoke-stacks were near the ocean, clouds are white, smoke is white...
