Clouds

It is a little known fact about me but I am a total weather bug. I should have been a meteorologist. Coulda woulda shoulda.

Anyway...

Today's clouds have me all excited! They looked so strange and threatening. It has been raining on and off today and the mountains beyond the foothill west of Boulder seem to have been swallowed by The Nothing. I took this picture this afternoon:
(disclaimer: these were taken on my camera phone so do not expect high quality!)
Pretty incredible isn't it?! Funny thing is that we got only a tiny rainstorm from this cloud and the parking lot we were in was actually quite sunny! At about 11 o'clock you can even see some blue sky pointing through! You gotta love Colorado and its schizophrenic weather. From fog to sun to rain to sun to wind to who-knows-what! That is just today and it is only 5pm!

Now it is all cloudy and cold looking outside so I think I am going to make some hot cocoa!

Yum!

Oh, here are a couple other great cloud pictures I took a while ago for all you closet-weather-lovers out there!

Oh, I remember those very clouds! I was on the way to our MOPS moms night out that night and just wished I had the camera with me. They were AMAZING!
