Fun Fact


A cloud can weigh more than a million pounds. Clouds are not as light and fluffy as they appear. In fact, researchers have found that a single cloud weighs about 1.1 million pounds. How do they know?

Fortunately, the cloud can still “float” at that weight because the air below it is even heavier.
