Thought these were a varient of mammatus clouds, have since been told that they might be caused from a "gravity wave." Apparently, those are hard to capture - if so, SOOOO glad I caught it! LOL
Meringue: that's what the sky
reminded me of: clouds beaten,
whipped to a frenzy of activity,
overhead. Upper level dynamics
combined with a stalled front to
the south rolled in the storms
on the winds of turbulence: if
not dessert, mountains or ocean
waves. One of the strangest
(scariest, in a beautiful sort of
way) cloud formations I've seen!
And tomorrow, could do it again. =]
