Making Rain

I heard today that airplanes cause precipitation. Perhaps now we have our answer to drought? I didn't grasp all the intricate details of this, but prop planes, at just the right altitude and temperature, can cause ice crystals to form in clouds. I guess if you get enough of those, you're going to have precipitation! The odd thing is that although the plane is relatively narrow, and occupies a small space, the resulting precipitation frequently covers a wide area. Now I guess we just need to learn to control this effect and we're all set.

Wouldn't it be easier if we decided not to settle in places with insufficient rain?

What happened with the high school travel opportunity?

I never heard from the high school thing, though I left my name and phone number, as requested, on the recording.
