Remarks & Notes 
Ya'll laugh at me for my comments about clouds and cloud gods; this is what a normal summer's morning looks like in southeast Texas. We had to leave Houston to get to Bellville NO LATER than 9AM; that was when the cloud gods realized that there were usually kodachrome GEs set out from the nighttime RCE grain and early morning sulfur trains, and started stirring up the atmosphere with the humidity and we played hide and seek with the trains and clouds the rest of the morning and most of the afternoon. This is why our sick, sick minds back then prayed for tropical storms or hurricanes to make it into the Gulf of Mexico, because the subsidence from the storms in the gulf would make for clear, cloudless days.
