    This does not surprise me! HAARP can suck the moisture out of the air and move it in a storm somewhere else.
    When we have heavy Chem Trail days, I can fill a glass with water, leave it all day, and by nightfall…the water is gone, and a very hard residue is left on the glass.
    Now, this might be my imagination…but, this rings of Weather Weaponry.
    Happy research folks!
