Cloud factory

yesterday tim drove me to work. it was MLK day (first i thought: Milk day, whats milk day?! but it was martin luther king day), so there was no shuttle since essentially it was a day off... it was soooo sunny, but very cold. on the way from home to work we pass this industrial area, and often the cloud factory is workin, as can be seen above...
well... thats what i thought these pipes were doing when young; i thought they were there to produce the clouds in the sky, and although usually rather ugly,  the clouds, although sometimes brownish, were usually pretty...! until my mother once told me that these were not quite cloud factories... i even think to remember where it was when i got this news; in the car on our way to the maxis (a long gone supermarket)? but it could very well be that that is just a memory i invented.
yet, i do still always think "ah, cloud factory".....
it is COLD here! last night it was defenitely below 10 degrees celsius, so cold that we couldnt sleep and i had to switch on the heater. besides, it started snowing again and its predicted to snow for a few days at least...
