When I was four I was into doing "rain dances" which were just a lot of jumping around and yelling. One day I put my turkey feather Indian headdress on and ran through the house whooping and shouting until I got really tired. The next day we had a massive rainstorm that caused flooding in a lot of low-lying areas around town. For the next six months I hid every time I saw a police officer because I was positive they knew I caused that flood and they were coming to get me!
I used to believe fog was caused by cows smoking cigars. How could mom be lying?!
Growing up, our neighbor had two small, white stone statutes in her yard, a squirrel and a dog.
One day I was playing the role of Smarter Older Sister and telling my 9-year-old brother about acid rain. "Know those animals in Mrs. Daniels's yard?" I said. "They would still be alive today if they had had the sense to come in out of the acid rain."
He was 11 before he realized how full of shit I was.
When I was little I was listening to the weather and the guy on the radio said "the wind-chill factor", I thought he was saying "the windshield factory", I couldn't figure out what the windshield factory had to do with the weather.
When my daughter was little she would wonder what the sunbeams through the clouds were, especially after a rain storm. I told her they were angels watching over us and everyone else. To this day (she's now 12), when we see streaming sunbeams through the clouds we point out the angels to each other.
i used to believe that all the weathers stayed in space and came out in turns.i had alot of drawings of allthe weathersplaying games in space.. yes, i was a sad little girl
my dad told me that when it rained god had a leak in his faucet so my dead grandpa would fix it because he was a plumber.
When I was small I sat on the front doorstep one day and thought seriously about rain. I came to the concusion that God must have a row of taps in Heaven, and that he turned them on when he wanted to send rain. I felt very satisfied with my theory.
I used to believe that the Sun is real scorching hot on Sundays than on the other days of the week and somehow since i used to play cricket outdoor only on sundays, i used to feel the sun and my belief was there till i reached 8th grade..
When I was little, my grandfather used to tell me that I was so pretty I could walk between the raindrops. Whenever it was cloudy out, but not raining, I believed it really was but I was just walking between the drops. Whenever it really was raining out and I was getting wet, I used to think it was because I did something wrong and so God was punishing me.
When i was younger i thought thunder was from mother nature bowling and lightning was from mother nature not paying her electric bill and rain was from mother nature crying and i thought wind was from mother nature sneezing ( i think) Whenever one of these things happened i would always look out my window for mother nature.
my first memory is riding my tricyle and looking up and thinking the clouds were following me!
I always thought the weatherman was saying the "wind shield" today is 15 degrees. And that was the temperature of the wind hitting your wind shield while driving. YEARS LATER I find out it's the "wind chill." OOHHHHH I get it! I still think my version makes sense.
That the "glitter" in crispy snow was angels
I believed that on the weather report when the Weather Person was talking about the Wind Chill, I thought they are saying the "Windshield" and if you went and felt your windshield on your car that how cold it felt outside.
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.
I used to believe when there was a rainbow, it was an angel who was treep over his color palet.
Ten years ago I used to believe when at the place where I was he rain and in the world it rained too.
