I guess that's why the Dutch Army might be doing experiments with the  
weather as of lately, without informing the public?

- creating fog  (during the new years celebratoin i heard huge  
atmospheric booms which were not caused by fireworks,
and despite being a normal temperature far above zero, more like 10+  
celcius, when i went up the highways at spots where there is living  
very few persons,
there was a very close fog, which obviously was not the fireworks but  
some military fog. Some people got killed that night because of the  
close fog in traffic
accidents. The newsreport already mentionned the fog *before* it was  
there, so how did they know about this fog (and in previous years  
they never
warned for this during the new years celebrations) ?

- creating rain

- creating clouds that cause thunder and lightning

Very local effect sometimes, sometimes nationwide.
