We were driving to Florida for Christmas, and I knew it was warm there. I thought there was an actual line where the snow stopped, and the sun and grass began. I was very disappointed to see that it got warmer gradually as we drove South.

top belief!

When I was in kindergarten our teacher was trying to explain that there are four seasons in each year, each three months long and starting on a set date, such as winter starting on December 21st. The thing is, this was in the Canadian prairies, which are hellishly cold, even for Canada, and I remember getting into a huge argument with the teacher because in reality, winter (at the least) started in mid-October and went until early April. I remember trying to argue that if October was really in the fall, why did we have to wear parkas over our Halloween costumes?

As a child of the desert and 70-degree Christmases, I had little experience with snow. I had seen in portrayed many times in cartoons and movies, though. A jingling bell sound always seemed to accompany it.

Therefore, I resolutely believed that snow made a "jingle, jingle, jingle" sound as it fell. When it miraculously snowed one day when I was in first grade, I was rather disappointed to learn that this wasn't true...

Whenever it rained I used to believe that God pushed this powerful button to control the intensity, duration, and time of day the rain would fall.

In elementary school, I misread the word "cumulus" and thought cumulus clouds were actually "Columbus clouds." I realized by sixth grade that I'd been wrong, but I still like the picture "Columbus clouds" gives me of the explorer leaning forward at the front of the ship, guided by the huge stacks of white clouds passing across a cerulean blue sky. So for me, "Columbus clouds" they will remain.

When I was about 5 years old I believed that if I put a thermometer in the freezer, it would start to snow outside. I even tried it once but my grandmother found out and put a quick stop to my experiment.

When I was little and I heard a weather report in the winter, I always wondered why they gave two temperatures: one for the "windshield factory" and one for everyone else. I couldn't figure out why it would have to be so much colder where they made windshields. I don't remember how long I thought this before I learned about the wind chill factor.

In the 70's there was lots of talk about the ice age on TV. Of course I assumed it was going to happen in my lifetime and was worried about it. I imagined we would all have to live in massive submarines in the water under the ice. I figured each submarine would be it's own country.

I thought snow had diamonds in it because it sparkles when the sun hits it.

Wind came from children who were being punished - they were forced to stand in a barn and an old man made them all blow in the same direction to make wind.

I grew up in Florida and my grandparents lived in NY. I always loved the snow so my grandfather told me that he would send me a snow ball. Weeks later I recieved a moth ball in a babyfood jar labeled 'snow ball'...I believed for YEARS that it was a snow ball.
