Heavy, heavy clouds

Clouds are heavy.  They really are.

I mean, they’re water, that’s all –

8.34 pounds per gallon, that’s all.

According to scientists –  thus spake Googlethustra –

Your standard cumulus cloud weighs in at 1.1 million pounds.

120,000 gallons of water, give or take a quart or two.

Looming overhead.  If it all came crashing

(Hahaha!  “Cloud crashing”…a concept)

Down, it’d do more than just mist your glasses.

And then some.

Keep a wary eye on that cloud…


I play Klondike.

I’m used to losing,

Inured to the whim of the draw.

Three card draw.

The game is what it is.

Random action on green baize.

There’s nothing for it,

Just deal the cards again.
