Peggy LeMone of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado has done some calculating and has come up with an estimate of how much a cloud weighs.
Considering the weight of individual, tiny drops of water and then doing the math, she estimates a single, puffy cumulus clouds can weigh up to 550 tons!
According to ABC news, that single cloud weighs as much as 100 elephants!
A big thunderstorm cloud could weigh as much as 200,000 elephants and a hurricane might tip the scales at the equivalent of the weight of 40 MILLION elephants!
With these theoretical numbers in mind, let’s just be happy clouds don’t fall!
