No clouds of note yesterday, so no blog today

But, on second thought, people who have nothing to say, often say it anyway….and that’s pretty much what happens here everyday anyway….to repeat “anyway” again anyway.

Things continue to roll along for a juicy dump of rain, snow and wind beginning here on Monday.

Its windy outside now.

OK, a coupla clouds from yesterday….

8:15 AM.  Pretty Cirrus fibratus (has delicate strands, filaments of falling ice crystals).

12:15 PM. “Micro” snowstorms.  Look at the snow trailing down!  It would be composed of itty-bitty crystals (a couple of hundred microns in maximum dimension), probably “bullet rosettes.”   I bet Boston folk would like to have these snowstorms instead of the ones they’ve gotten.
4:00 PM.  There were some Cumulus fractus, poor guys never even got to the humble or "humilis" stage.  You should still have logged them in your cloud diary, however.

You should still have logged them in your cloud diary, however.  Note the horrific vertical wind shear here as indicated by tops being ripped off to the left, showing how much the wind increased with height from the bottom to the top of even these shallow clouds. I guess I can’t expect you to have a sophisticated comment like that in your diary, but would hope for it.
6:20 PM.  Some Cirrus eye candy.  Sunset seems to be happening later and later.
