Hey, who's a forecaster?!

This is a test. This is only a test. Beeeeeep. Actually, this is a two fold test!! First, these pics really DO seem like a weather warning of some sort should follow! Secondly, it is a test to see who actually knows what kind of clouds these are.

Remember the sunflower pics?! And I said we took over 400 pictures in 13 minutes?!

Well, this bad boy is the reason! I have NO idea what kind of weather condition this is a precurson to, but it was quite ominous. (I always liked that word... ominous!)

So if anybody is married to a weatherman or has seen these before, help a sister out. There was almost a straight line across the sky from dark to light.

So what'd we do?! We went on in and got our take home pizza anyway!

Ah, the dreaded "Get the storm bag out, we may need it cloud", otherwise known as the "better finish this hole and head for the clubhouse" cloud.

I searched google. They look like Nimbo Stratus. Here is what it says:

Nimbostratus are dark, low-level clouds accompanied by light to moderately falling precipitation. Low clouds are primarily composed of water droplets since their bases generally lie below 6,500 feet (2,000 meters). However, when temperatures are cold enough, these clouds may also contain ice particles and snow.

I think I am now admitting I am a google nerd. I bet I would have done much better at research papers in school if I had known about google back the.

That looks similar to what we encountered at mighty Lambeau Field last night watching the Packers scrimmage, resulting in approximately 50,000 people cramming into the concourse waiting for it to subside........

That looks like the kind of cloud that brings blessed relief from heat and humidity.
