It's so clear, you can see the mountains!

Just to clarify, there are no mountains around here, but sometimes when the clouds are low, it kind of looks like mountains.

When Thing 1 was in middle school, I picked up her best friend on the way to school. One morning, the clouds were low and I told her friend, "Look! It's so clear you can see the mountains today!" She looked up and got all excited. "Yeah, you can see them!"

A moment later she said "I didn't know we had mountains around here." I told her we didn't ... that those were clouds. We had a good laugh ... at her expense. We still tease her about it ... and I will post a pic on her Facebook page today to let her know I haven't forgotten! It does kind of look like mountains, don't you think?
