I used to believe the sound of thunder was caused by clouds bumping together. And when they bumped together, it made a spark, which was lightning.

I used to believe a blizzard was an animal that lived outside in the snow. My Mother would worry and say things like "I hope your Father gets home soon, there's a blizzard outside" or "you can't go outside because of the blizzard." I would look out from a window in hopes of seeing that little blizzard.

When it snowed at night, I used to think the snow came from the stereet lights because it was the only place you could see it.

When people would use the term in the 40's, 50's 60's,etc. to describe the temperature outside. I thought it meant that was the decade people were acting like. Like if you said it's supposed to be in the 70's today, I would have thought there'd be men with afros, and women rollerskating outside! I finally figured it out after watching the weather channel one day.

I use to believe that in the winter time if everybody would open their doors that the outside would warm up and no one would have to wear a coat to keep warm. It was so odd to me that the inside the house was so warm, the outside so cold, but if everyone could just warm up the outside by opening the doors so the heat would go outside.

When I was a little girl I used to think that tornadoes came out of holes in the ground so before I would play outside each day I would go cover any holes or put something on top of them. We lived in Oklahoma and I was terrified of them.

When I was younger, I used to believe that when it rained, God was taking a shower, and thunder & lightning were his way of keeping Peeping Toms away.

I grew up in Florida were it doesn't snow. In school we would create snow flakes for decorations during the holidays. But it wasn't until I saw snow at age 18 that I realized snow flakes were microscopic, not 8x10.

I used to believe that I could order nice weather. This was something my sisters had put inside my head, but I kept on saying things like "Don't worry, I'll order some sun" and "If only my order gets through to the weather man" until I was about 8 or 9 years old. When my oldest sister then politely told me that it was all rubbish, my mother claim I said "Oh, I wondered if he didn't like me anymore" as the weather had been very wet the past month.

I used to think that when it rained it was due to all the people in heaven crying. And I used to think... 'they are already in heaven, shouldn't they be having a good time?'

when I was about 4 years old my family moved from Texas to Virginia. We moved Christmas eve, and my mom told me that once we got to Virginia I'd see beautiful snow on all the trees. I had this vision of enormous trees covered in pink fluff, maybe even adorned with ornaments (I'd never seen snow in Texas). Once mom announced that we were in Virginia and I saw these towering evergreens covered in plain old white, I cried bitter tears of resentment, repeating, "this can't be Virginia, there are no pink Christmas trees!"

I used to believe that when I sang a song called "Mr. Sun" loud enough, the sun would come out and smile at me. When it was stormy out, I thought the sun was mad. Then, in school, I learned about clouds and weather. I never sang that song again.

When i was little, a class mate of mine told me that i would go blind if a snowflake hit me in the eye. Consequently i spent most of my younger years walking around with my eyes closed if it was snowing. I missed out on a lot of good snowballs fights and get severe reprimands from my parents as a result of this!!

I knew there was one sun and that when the sun was shining on our side of the world it was dark on the other. I also thought that there was one set of clouds, and when it was raining here it was clear on the other side of the world!

When my friend was small she couldn't get the word foggy right. Always said froggy. Her parents thought it was so cute until one day being driven to school on a very "froggy" day she was staring out her window and said to her mom, "Those frogs must be REALLY small!"
