Dammit. I really thought 'carrot was going to use "adiabatic" in a sentence.
I've had a $15 bet on it for 7 years now. "Orographic lift" would be good
for $12, but if he'd said instead, "dry adiabatic lapse rate" -- I'da been
on my way to a steak dinner tonight.

east-west angle, you can actually see the heavy yellow bands of rainfall
following the topography. Very impressive visible orographic lift for such
relatively low ridges....
