Sub-title: Fish bones Clouds
Uncommon fish cloud
Swimming now in blue sky sea
Look up to see it.

The other day at lunch, I was filling up with gas and Martha told me to step out from under the covered area and look overhead. I only had my cell phone to take the photo with. It did a pretty good job.
These clouds were forming on the back side of a huge storm which we later learned was producing tornadoes. These clouds were almost directly overhead and it was clear to the West and really stormy to the East. I certainly am glad the storm was moving to the east.
If these were higher they could be called “Cirrus fibratus vertebrates”
Stratocumulus – low level
Vertebrates – having vertebrae
Cirrus – curl of hair
Fibratus – possessing filaments
I don’t know the altitude, so I can’t give them their exact technical weather name.
