I used to believe that if I ran fast enough I could outrun the rain.

I used to believe if it ever got cold enough the sky would freeze over just like the lakes did. Of course, it would come crashing down on us with a horrible noise because of all the weight. I used to have terrible nightmares of the day this would happen.

I used to believe, sun moves when nobody is looking. And the sun psyches the observer into thinking something and not notice his movements (I guess my grand mother told me this as she couldn't answer my many questions).
On many evenings, I used to sit in the balcony determined to catch a setting sun but in the process invariably used to be distracted by some thought or the other and the next time I look the sun is already a foot below from where he was when I started. As I woudn't notice I spent so much time thinking something else, i used to think he moved all that distance at my momentary distraction.
After many trials, I gave up thinking it's a human limitation and sun always manages to move when nobody is looking. Similar to the deceiving rains. I knew when it rains it doesn't rain everywhere in the world. So, i used to think, there has to be a place where the rain ends and because nobody i knew had seen such a thing, this always happens when nobody is around.

When i was about 5, i'd play barbies in front of the window because the sun beams would always shine on the carpet. So i made my barbie's go tanning in the sunbeams and i noticed that the sunbeams would go away and then come back and i looked out the window and see that the sun was still out but there were no sunbeams. My mom was sitting near me on the couch and i asked her "When the sunbeams go away, is the sun breathing?" and she said "yes" but i don't think she was really paying attention. So for the longest time i thought everytime the sun went away, it was inhaling and when it exhaled the sun came back. Stupid me, later i found out it was just a cloud in front of the sun.

My mom told me one time during a tornado warning that if it was raining, that there could not be a tornado.
I had a plan.
I would go outside if I saw the tornado, and grab the hose. Then, I would spray the tornado down and make it go away. I would save the whole neighborhood!!

When I was about 5 or so, I used to believe that when it was raining it was God who would be bathing and the water would be running down the drains which was the clouds. Even up to now I can't figure out where I got that idea.

I used to think that weather presenters actually made the weather. This was the case in the days when they used a map with stick-on icons instead of computer graphics, and I used to be annoyed at them when they put rain clouds on the map!

When I was little I used to believe that the snow came down from the mountain instead of the sky...cause all the older people would look up at the snow line and say the snow is coming down the mountain

I used to believe that a tornado was the Big Bad Wolf (from Three Little Pigs) driving around in a police car. Living in Kansas, we had quite a few tornadoes... One, in particular, came pretty close to our house. When the warnings were issued, my mom called me in from playing outside, but before I could go in I had to go to the end of the driveway and look down the street for the "tornado". I told my mom I didn't see it coming, but had to go in anyway. Imagine my surprise when I saw the real thing!

once, when me and my twin sister were little, there were really strong winds, so we asked my dad if the roof was going to blow off. he said it might, and since me and hers room is on the top floor, we were really scared. that night we collected all our teddies and blankys into our pillow cases and sat for hours waiting to the roof to blow off. we loved our teddies so much, we had to save them lol. after a while, we went to sleep, hugging our pillow cases stuffed with teddies. our roof didnt blow off in the end!!
