“April Showers Bring May Merit Badges!
On to Clouds. Now I am not talking about the computer cloud and how data is stored, but a less nerdy natural pastime. Yep. My head is in the clouds! Heck, Who doesn’t love lying in the grass looking at clouds and making up a story?
Clouds form when the invisible water vapor in the air condenses into visible water droplets or ice crystals. There is water around us all the time in the form of tiny gas particles, also known as water vapor. There are also tiny particles floating around in the air—such as salt and dust—these are called aerosols.
My favorite is the Cumulonimbus! The thunderstorm cloud! This web link has some great photos!
This week and all day tomorrow will be Nimbostratus! Yep … Rain, rain, and more rain. I am not complaining! A great day to stay indoors and read a book and maybe play a game with the family!”
Ginger , I resonate with your interest in all things weather!! There is so much to learn from just the simplest thing we all recognize;clouds. Fascinating and important to understanding what and why certain weather conditions exist at any time of day.
Way to go Ginger on getting your Intermediate Level Weather Merit Badge! I would have to say my favorite are Nimbostratus. I love have rainy days. Looks like we will be having some Cumulus clouds today.
Way to go Ginger Dawn!
