Cloud Appreciation Society

Always my pleasure to pass along the Cloud Appreciation Society’s occasional Newsletter.

If you are – or you decide to become – a member of the society, you can also join local groups of cloudspotters. I started the Imperial County California group, and then was encouraged to merge with the Borrego Springs group. It’s a small world of little towns and big spaces under this open sky and the coordinator of the Borrego Springs group was none other than a client of mine!

Now that we have the two groups merged, it’s actually catching us at the least-busy time of year for cloudspotting here. Plain blue is installed almost without exception through about the end of July. We might get some thunderheads to look at in August! But if you’re in our catchment area, please join us and we can start sharing some of the clouds when they return from their sojourn.

Cloud Appreciation Society Newsletter

Always my pleasure to pass along the CAS Newsletter.  I recently became the leader of an Imperial County Cloudspotter group.  If you’re into clouds – and I am – in fact at the moment I’m writing this I’m inside a cloud because it’s raining – you should consider joining – and if you’re in Imperial County, join the cloudspotter group too.  We don’t always have a lot of clouds around here, so they’re more of a treat!

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.

Desert virga falls,
precipitation transforms

Another little collage, ready to go.  Very appropriate for a post on a cloudy day.

#1406 “Sky’s War” 
Watercolor collage on foamcore, 7.5×5.5″ with mat to fit 10×8 frame. $45. Haiku written for it reads:
Clouds are the sky’s war,
The strategy and battle
and sometimes, the blood.

If you see my post but don’t open the Cloud Appreciation Society newsletter, make this on the exception.  There is a wonderful short video of rare and beautiful mother-of-pearl clouds!

Cloud Appreciation Society

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.
