Beijing Snow Job!

"Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow..."

The Chinese are making it snow. With drought making things drier in Beijing than that two year old fortune cookie stuffed in the back of your junk drawer, meteorologists managed to seed the clouds which in turn, made it snow (don't ask me how this works). The resulting precipitation was welcome sight. Perhaps the Chinese will invent a way to make trees grow dollar bills.

  1. My Grandfather worked on the original US cloud seeding program...Project was suddenly terminated when a Hurricane they were trying to push to dump water turned inland...they use silver iodide to force the condensation stuff...most of what he did is still classified.
