Cool Clouds: Cloud Quiz


Once again, we have some fine stratus clouds blanketing the sky. But look closely. They have a bit of a puff. That's a signal that they might break up and become cumulus clouds surrounded by lovely blue sky.

That brings to mind an interesting fact I recently came across. I've presented it here as a quiz. Let's see how you do?

Q: True or False? About 50 percent of all clouds produce rain.
A: False. Actually, only 10 percent of all clouds shower down on us.

Surprised? I was.
