My 9-year-old son got up this morning and said: “Wow, Mum, I’ve just seen the biggest chemtrails being laid. Where’s my Ipad?” He found his Ipad and took photos of the trails at about at 7.30am and then a few more photos an hour later, at about 8.30am.
The aerosol particles blocked out the sunshine very quickly. It’s ‘cough-cough’ weather.
The weather in Nelson has been a real mish-mash of temperatures and cloud formations over the past 6 weeks. I’ve seen a lot of paired aerosol trails. We have had everything from hail storms to intense-looking clouds, which left us with an expectation that there would be plenty of rain falling, but then there was only very light rain, which got splattered around and it was over in a few minutes.
The most rain we have had in recent weeks was two days ago and that would have amounted to only a quarter-of-an-inch and these were large droplets which fell.
We have noticed a distinct chemical smell to each lot of spitting and hail storms. The clouds have been freakish-looking at times, as if they belong in another planet’s atmosphere.
We have had days when it has been intensely hot, like being in a microwave, and then days when it has been unseasonably cold. Sometimes we have had four seasons in one day, however, this could be deemed ‘normal’ for New Zealand, although I don’t feel that the weather is natural or normal anymore. I don’t recall not being able to look up long without getting sore eyes 5 years ago. The haze and the glare that these aerosol trails make is very hard on the eyes now.
Also, on a negative note, it has been heart-breaking to see the farmers here struggling with their crop yields, not only owing to extreme hail storms, but also as a result of a lack of rain now. We have very dry conditions and a dam is proposed which is expected to cost around $74.6 million which some want built to help make some Tasman district farmland more productive.
It is my wish and that of many others, that the ‘powers-that-be’ stop manipulating the weather. This would save constructing a very expensive dam, which will hit Tasman ratepayers hard in their pockets and it will save our struggling farmers from being forced off their land.
