Spooooky

Anyone know what makes clouds look like this?

I snapped this picture on my way out of the office yesterday since the clouds looked so neat and shit. It wasn't raining yet...just started sprinkling when I ran into a store to grab some beer, actually. And I've seen clouds looking like this before, but its been a while. I love it when they do this, but would love to know (in the simplest terms possible, please...) what makes them do this.

They are a form of mammatus cloud.

The clouds are playing; nothing to worry about.

Cool though, huh?

you can invite Gary Lezak to your work, he can explain and then demonstrate dog tricks. Somehow my work manages to invite a different weather-person with a lecture every year.

Thanks for the link, XO!

doc, I like to think that about the clouds, too. Must be fun to be a cloud.

Meesha, if he makes balloon animals, I'm in. Otherwise, Lezak can suck it!

does this god guy have an IM so i can ask for special requests? an e-mail or fax number perhaps? hell, i'd buy him multiple beers if he'd whip up a tornado over a couple of lawyers houses I know...he does drink, right?
