Storm Machine

Use mist to strenthen winds.

So, it seems that misting the air around a storm aids winds, which of course will aid pressure variations and subsequent stormy weather.

Their idea is to suppress the mist, but why can't we instigate this process? Some areas are known for having stormy conditions, yet have a few stable factors which prevent a true storm from breaking out (valleys, for instance). I propose that a couple gigantic misters in these regions could tip the scales just enough to magnify storm activity.

       Some people enjoy storms. Rain is good for crops.
