I used to think that snow was rain still in the bag.
When the weather was bad outside, I used to copy what I thought my dad was saying, and say "let's go out and brave the elephants", instead of elements.
When I was about 5 or 6 and even later, I used watch the clouds during a mild windy day, believing that they were trasforming into creatures of different shapes and forms for the purpose of having a party. I thought they were talking to each other and I wished so much to know what they say! So silly!
I used to believe that clouds were foreign countries.
I use to believe that if the clouds were gray it was because they were filled with dirt and then the rain came to rinse them off and they'd be white again.
Because of my sister, I believe that when there was a ring around the moon, aliens would come the next day and abduct someone. I told this to my friends because I honestly had no idea and ended up scaring them silly.
When I was 6, my family moved from New York City to the suburbs in Florida. In NYC the sky is usually gray or smoggy so it was the first time I had seen blue skies and clouds. I used to try to lay in the grass and look for shapes in the clouds but I never could stay long enough to find anything because I was absolutely terrified that the clouds would fall on me. I was still uneasy even after I learned that clouds are weightless water vapor.
My boyfriend used to think that it couldn't be windy unless it was cloudy- because of all the kids books where the clouds have little faces and are blowing leaves off trees etc.!
When my mom would tell my it was raining cats and dogs, I thought I would need to put all my cats and dogs in a cage so they would not fall from the sky!
I used to believe that, when it rained in my city, it rained all over the world. It took me a couple years (of young childhood, like, before grade school) and of watching the weather channel on TV as punishment, lol) to figure out that it rained in different areas at different times. Of course, I rarely see someone that was as dumb as I was back in those days.
When I was little, I used to believe... When the sky turned pink, the "lady" clouds were putting on makeup and the "boy" clouds were getting ready. The pink in the sky was created by the pink blush that the lady clouds were putting on. They were getting ready to go to the ball.
THE BIG CLOUD
When I was a child of about 8, every afternoon during the Easter holidays I used to go the river bed to play with my brothers and sisters, my mum, my uncle and my cousins. One day I saw a single large, white cloud in the sky and suddenly it started to rain. I had a brilliant idea, ' Let's run to the end of the cloud so it will stop raining!', and my brothers and cousins started to run; but my uncle shouted, 'What are you doing? The end could be in the next town!' We stopped; we could never run that far!
I use to think that snow was oreo cookie filling. When the snow melted I thought The oreo workers (my name for them) would collect the cream
I had a charming meteorological theory when I was young.
Drizzle - God's spit
Snow - God's dandruff
Rain - God, er, relieving himself.
When my son was young, we went up north to visit relatives. It was dark out, but snowing. I wanted to show my son (then a toddler) the snow so, I turned on the outside light so he could see it falling. Then, when we were finished, I turned the light out. Well, he saw me flip the switch off and assumed that it operated the snow because he said "turn the snow back on mommy!"
I remember asking my mother why there are clouds in the sky. She told me they are there so they could clean up our cars when driving on a cloudy day...
when i was a little girl i used to believe that rain is broght down to earth when goddesses who cry over their dead husband (gods)corpes who fought with each other in war.
When I was younger I believed that the weatherman actually decided what the weather was going to be. I couldn't understand why he didn't make it sunny all day and then rain all night!
I remember thinking that when a sun went behind a cloud and things were a little darker because you were in the cloud's shadow what actually happened was a big factory just shut off all the lights and caused the world to get a little bit darker.
I used to think that tornadoes were giant tomatoes that would sit on top of your house until everyone died.
