Most have seen virga, but most just have no idea what they observe.
Today, due to weather conditions, the radar was full of precipitation, but no rain was found at the ground.
I was driving, and a few drops of rain hit my windshield. To the North, long streamers of virga hung from the clouds, never reaching the ground, and it was obvious the same streamers were overhead; except a few drops of rain lasted to strike my windshield.
It's not a rare occurrence, but it's remarkable, when observed.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
