So far up in the air

A: (shows B the picture above).

B: I'm glad it didn't rain. That nose is so far up in the air.

- Hi everyone! "to be up in the air" means "if something is up in the air, no decision has been made about it yet.". I guess B's two sentences have figurative meanings. What do they mean in this case?

Thanks so much!

Google "nose up in the air" and it'll probably become clearer. The quip about the rain means it was "so up in the air" it was in danger of filling up with water.
