That is true. I remember years ago when I was using billboards. I put 
planks behind them to hold them up. :)

I mentioned it because at one point I could see the cloud passing 
through one of the buildings. But thinking about it that wouldn't help. 
You would need a particle system to get the cloud to move around it.

The cloud reminds me of gas burning. Years ago before the UK oil and gas 
platforms exported the hydrocarbon gas to shore. It was flared off.
I've spent hours looking at it, almost hypnotic. Especially at night.
