I have lived on this planet 30 years and been in direct contact with weather and looked at clouds with no real idea how they worked. I now understand much better. Its a shame it took this long but I am so thrilled to keep learning! It seems so intuitive once those concepts in the first 9 lectures took hold. Thank you!
