I used to think rain was invisible, like wind. When I realised I could actually see it if I tried hard enough, I thought I had superpowers.
One day when I was in about 2nd or 3rd grade, The news was on the TV in the other room, and I heard the news lady say that there was a "weak tornado" in Kansas. Well I thought she meant a "week tornado". I was so horrified that there was a tornado that lasted for a whole week! The next day I told my mom again how I couldn't believe there was a week long tornado, and then she cleared it up for me. I was so embarrassed.
I used to believe that fog occurs when someone shoots a cloud with a gun.
I believed that wind was caused because the trees moved. I was completely sure my conclusion was correct.
I believed you could sit on clouds.
We were always told that lightning was God's fireworks; no fear to be had. Like then, still love a good lightning storm.
My friend's daughter always thought we were talking about the "windshield factor" She couldn't understand how we could tell how cold it was using a windshield.
There is large factory in the largest city near my hometown that has an impressive smokestack. When I was little, I thought that the factory was where clouds came from.
I used to believe that the weather man on TV would make up whatever forecast he wants, then pray to god it came true.
When I was younger, I used to look out of the window of our car and see the Sun. Wherever we went, we could still see the Sun, and as a result I believed that the Sun was following us.
I used to think that the trails that Airplanes left in the sky, that's how clouds were made.
I used to think that tornadoes were giant purple octopuses that would climb up the side of your house and rip your roof off. i learned what an actual tornado was when i saw The Wizard of Oz.
When I was young I thought that if it was raining here it was raining everywhere.
I used to believe I could control the weather by singing rain rain go away or blowing the clouds away.
I used to believe if I looked up when it was raining, my eyes would fill with water and I would drown. Thanks for that, dad.
I used to believe that clouds were made from a factory chimney that was south of my home town.
When I was little my parents told me tornadoes were afraid of water to keep me from having panic attacks when tornadoes came since we lived next to a lake. Freshman year, I was at my friends house and the tornado sirens went off. I told her not to worry because she had a pool in her backyard. Needless to say, I haven't heard the end of it.
When I was little, I believed my dad could stop the rain at any second while driving down the freeway. What I didn't notice was that he would shout "stop!" every time we would drive under an overpass. I finally figured it out around 7 or 8. :)
We learned in about 1st grade that clouds were made of water vapor. We also learned that water vaporizes at 212° F. I put 2 and 2 together and believed that clouds were scorching hot. One day while riding in the car through dense fog, i asked my mom what fog was made of. She said it was basically a cloud on the ground. I wondered how we'd get out of the car without being burned.
When I was little, I believed that it was someone's job to hoist the sun up into the sky, and someone else's job to climb a really big ladder to hang up the clouds. Since sometimes there were no clouds in the sky, I assumed that person didn't go to work. I was always worried the man who hoisted the sun wouldn't go to work one day, and it would be dark when I woke up.
