This is one cool cloud
01-08-2010 11:16 AM

This amazing picture shows a rare phenomenon called a roll cloud which tend to form ahead of a cold front and can stretch for miles.

They are most common when an advancing storm front causes moist air to rise, then cool to the point where it becomes a cloud known as the dew point.
When this happens along a front, a roll cloud can form, often with air actually circulating along the horizontal axis of the cloud.

That's a really cool shot Mark

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma... which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
