If you’ve ever been outside on a foggy day, you’ve essentially been inside a cloud, just one very close to the ground instead of high in the sky. Fog and clouds are both made of tiny water droplets – like the ones you can sometimes see or feel in a hot, steamy shower. Clouds form through evaporation and condensation. Water in lakes, rivers, oceans or puddles evaporates into water vapor as the sun heats it up. You can evaporate water yourself by boiling it – watch it disappear as vapor.
My grandfather used to fly small aircrafts when I was a child. He used to pick my sister and I up for the summer vacation in the plane. A 4 hour car drive turned into a 45 minutes flight. My sister Alison is older so of course she always got to ride shotgun in the front seat but I didn’t mind I loved being able to have the back seat to myself so o I could move back and forth. I always took a container or a a jar with a lid. It was the first thing i set out looking for as soon as i knew grandpa was flying down to pick me up] Grandpa never allowed me to hang my arm out of the window it just is not his idea of flying safe. My Grandpa knew how badly I had wanted to capture a magic cloud so instead of catching one I became one. He was on the lookout for the most dense cumulous cloud in site, one in which he would fly straight in the middle. Not a clear view in sight we were surrounded in the magical cloud. This was a mixture or terror and bliss, I loved my grandfather, I loved him even more for fulfilling my wish and also cterrifying my sister to the point of hyperventilating. There were a few times I had to hand over my whimsical cloud catcher to my sister, she used it as a puke catcher! Only once ever in my life did I feel my grandfather may not be perfect . We ran out has mid flight, we were cruising along high in the sky when the planr made a sound id never heard that sound ,the propeller stopped then the second and the 3rd.
