Prayer for Rain 

 Hindu priests, in cauldrons of water, make offerings in front of a fire while performing the ‘Parjanya Varun Yagam,’ a special prayer for rain, in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad. India’s monsoon rainfall was 43 percent below average in June, the weather office said, the weakest first month of the season in five years.

Gravity Tides or Gravity Waves

The undulating pattern of a Gravity Wave is caused by air displaced in the vertical plain, usually as a result of updrafts coming off the mountains or during thunderstorms. Nature then tries to restore the fluid changes caused by updrafts within the atmosphere, which present in a visible oscillating pattern within the cloud.

Not that I think nature is evil, but I am guessing people on the ground thought so.

Snow Doughnuts
These rare shapes are formed—under perfect temperature conditions only—when a mass of snow either falls or is blown by the wind. If it manages to catch on to some other snow, and gravity or the wind is in its favor, then the new snowball will roll itself in the exact same way we all used to. In this case, though, the middles tend to collapse to create a donut shape, which can end up as tall as 26 inches (66 cm).
