Newer work #94

I love the desert rain when you can see it falling from a distance – sometimes the air below being so dry the rain never reaches the ground – the effect known as virga.

The Cloud Appreciation Society newsletter is always interesting, but this one is especially because of the cooking demonstration, where a panini toaster is used to show how clouds are cooked up.

The Cloud Appreciation Society Newsletter is always a welcome item in my in-box.  I especially loved the item about the Horseshoe Vortex.

Always a pleasure to pass along the Cloud Appreciation Society Newsletter.
