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.

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 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.

Till I understood the meaning of the phrase "Every cloud has a silver lining" I always used to look at the clouds and search for the silver lining and could never find one.... :-)

When we were about 6, my best friend and I used to think that whenever we saw a rainbow, we could make different colors appear in it by throwing different colored trash in the gutter at the end of the road. It really seemed to work...
