Look out, cumulonimbus!

2009/06/06

The Cloud Appreciation Society (only the British would think of that, but it does exist) want to make a new type of cloud. Asperatus. Hmm, I sort of expected them to look like asparagus, but that would really just be wind-whipped contrails. Asperatus.

What do you think, does it have a chance? Or we could add the perhaps more appropriate basementus type:

Maybe a half cousin of the asperatus?

It looked so promising, but no, we got, wait for it, high winds. And barely any rain. Oh well, maybe this weekend. Anyway, I would proudly wear this should anyone care to send one. Such a happy cloud.
