My Friends Call It Self-Confidence

A  L  O  H  A !

"In meteorology, a virga is an observable streak or shaft of precipitation falling from a cloud that evaporates or sublimates before reaching the ground.[1] A shaft of precipitation that does not evaporate before reaching the ground is a precipitation shaft. At high altitudes the precipitation falls mainly as ice crystals before melting and finally evaporating. . ."

Perfect Palm Shadow
When the shadow of a tree is bent, 
straighten the tree, not the shadow.

I have great faith in fools - 
my friends call it self-confidence.

That is a very intense virga! Around these parts, they generally evaporate while still way up in the atmosphere. It's a frustrating sight during a hot, dry summer.

Virga is a meteorologists' buzz word. "Don't worry about that. It's just virga."

Great quotes. Love the bright colors people wear. Now I know that streak is called a virga.
