About Today’s Photo:
As the sun sets over Pelots Bay in North Hero, a passing cumulus cloud drops virga towards the ground. Technically, virga is rainfall that drops from clouds but evaporates before it hits the ground. This shower looks to be kind of on the cusp, so perhaps rain was indeed making it to the ground somewhere in upstate New York or southern Québec.
