GE Water Technologies in the Clouds

General Electric has a chain gang operating in the clouds to demonstrate the ways Nature and GE water technologies reuse water each year. Just as nature reuses water, GE water technologies turn billions of gallons into clean water each year, rain or shine.

The GE crew are kept busy pulling buckets, pumping water vapor, channeling streams, sampling waterfalls, all to get the water to the giant watering cans.

Lyrics

Someone told me long ago theres a calm before the storm,
I know; its been comin for some time.
When its over, so they say, itll rain a sunny day,
I know; shinin down like water.

[Chorus]
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin down on a sunny day?

Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,
I know; been that way for all my time.
til forever, on it goes through the circle, fast and slow,
I know; it cant stop, I wonder.
