In Russia, sometimes it rains cement


www.reuters.com

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian air force planes dropped a 25-kg (55-lb) sack of cement on a suburban Moscow home last week while seeding clouds to prevent rain from spoiling a holiday, Russian media said on Tuesday.

Ahead of major public holidays the Russian Air Force often dispatches up to 12 cargo planes carrying loads of silver iodide, liquid nitrogen and cement powder to seed clouds above Moscow and empty the skies of moisture.

I've heard of plenty of programs which are seeding clouds in an effort to boost rainfall, but I was unaware of programs with the aim of preventing it. After a bit of searching, I see that I was just uninformed.

Cement mix and silver iodide? Who the hell decides to dump this crap in the skies over a city?


The article suggests that this has been going on for at least 20 years:


Weather specialists said the cement's failure to turn to powder was the first hiccup in 20 years.


Makes me wonder what all else they have been dumping up there....
