Was this a phenomenon that was caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing on the asphalt in the parking lot or……

Was this rainbow-colored sheen on the water flowing across the surface of the parking lot caused by a variety of nonpoint source pollutants (Motor oil and other chemicals)? Can the same type of pollution be observed in the sky?

just some food for thought


A farmer named Mel Potter would lose 10% of his crop per year due to hail storms before he started using his hail cannon in 1995.

  • Since 1995, there have been no hail storms in his area.

It cost $1,000 per year to operate and it is still a fraction of the cost when compared to losing 10% of his crop on average.

In theory, it’s suppose to protect farms around the hail cannon up to a radius of half a mile.
