It's a process some believe convinces the sky to rain or snow, it's called cloud seeding. But it's future in Colorado Springs is uncertain.
In November of 2002, the city spent more than $70,000 on cloud seeding, which injects silver iodide into the clouds with the hope of creating precipitation.
So far, no one's sure if the efforts have worked or not. A final report on the findings is not yet available.
But, with budget cuts on the horizon, funding for cloud seeding could dry up by next year.
