Love the clouds (and the lightning)


Aside from blocking the sun, clouds can be pretty freaking awesome. We get not only rain – but lots of different types of rain. We get hail, snow and sleet. And most exciting of all – we get lightning.

Let me share with you the little bits of what I’ve learned about clouds, rain, experiments I’ve run to generate my own lightning, random things I’ve learned about climate change, how this all relates to Tesla coils, and what’s out there to help you appreciate the clouds just a little bit more during the next nine months of rain.

Lately, she’s been learning about high voltage, clouds and making your own lightning.
