Crazy Clouds in Hoboken

What’s with the Crazy Clouds in Hoboken? Real? Or not?

We’ve talked about why certain crazy clouds in Hoboken appear (or not). Some days there are none. Other days the entire sky is filled with clouds that probably wouldn’t even be there if it weren’t for the planes that flew by.

But the other day – I noticed how dense the clouds were – and it was entirely because of external forces – not just jet streams or weather patterns. Seemed very unnatural.

While I once believed that atmospheric humidity may play a role, I’m not so sure now. Because the day I snapped this photo – it was a dry, cool day. Didn’t make sense, and the only (natural) explanation I could come up with was that perhaps the “humidity” 30,000 feet up was different than it was on the surface. Who knows.

I saw those clouds too. Nothing to do with that rain storm we had yesterday. It appeared to be caused by airplanes. We were coming back to Hoboken and it was clear the whole way until we were approaching New York and the major airports. My boyfriend checked the weather and it was clear everywhere on the satellite. We were convinced it was artificially induced.

Or, you know, a cold front moved in the other day and those tend to bring some crazy clouds.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
