“…Or maybe you're laying back on a lawn chair somewhere watching
Contrails disappear from the sky.”

Richmond Fontaine. "Contrails." Lost Son. Cavity Search Records, Portland, 1999. CD.

TIME:  11:27 AM
PLACE:  Backyard
SUBJECT:  Contrails

A very lovely, breezy, warm fall day with bright blue skies.  I was able to spend some time outside, enjoying the weather as I was spray painting StellaDella’s Halloween costume (it involves cardboard and lots of duct tape…there will definitely be a photo of it in an upcoming post).  I’ve read that if jet contrails are longer and wider than normal, it will rain. Contrails are partly composed of water vapor, and the more moisture there is in the air, the longer and wider the contrails will be.  We are supposed to have rain tomorrow, so it will interesting to see if this holds true.
