Watch for pretty clouds today, tweet

5:41 AM: “Tweet”  Patch of big virga, sprinkles,  now in progress SW of Catalina.  Could make for a spectacular sunrise if more of that is around.

5:43 AM:  “Tweet”:  Banks of heavier, middle clouds and high clouds expected to arrive later in day.  Forming off Baja now.

5:45 AM:  “Tweet”:  Still expecting a trace to maybe a tenth of an inch from that system off Baja by mid-day tomorrow.

5:46 AM:  “Tweet”:  Major cold front goes through tomorrow night or Tuesday but looks dry now with just a big change in temperature.   Izzat more that 140 characters?

5:49 AM:  “Tweet”:  Still thinking about weather things and what to say next.

5:50 AM:  “Tweet”:  It wasn’t me that fell off that horse with a riding pal, in case you were worried about me, though I ride in that area.

5:51 AM:  “Tweet”:  Brain still pretty empty.

5:52 AM:  “Tweet”:  Still waiting for something to enter brain.

5:53 AM:  “Tweet”  OK, just thought of a joke.  See below.

See arrow.
See arrow.

5:56 AM:  “Tweet”:  OK, its a sophisticated weather joke.

5:58 AM:  “Tweet”:  Arrow points to today’s little cloud maker, but mods pretty clueless about where it is from the get go; how funny izzat?  Can I tweet and use a semi-colon?

6:02 AM: “Tweet”:  Have cameras ready!

6:03 AM: “Tweet”  Brain empty again.  Reminds me of that song, “Running on empty.”  Feels just like that.  Maybe that will distract some people while I think of something.

6:04 AM:  “Tweet”:  I haven’t added anything but will update anyway.

6:08 AM: “Tweet”:  Rain still expected in March.

6:09 AM:  “Tweet”  The End.
