Whenever I see these “black puffies” I know, for sure, they bring on tons of rain!
Rain which is torrential and flood causing. And here in the UK the flooding has been dreadful.
Several of my friends in the north of the UK have been totally flooded out. \
By far and away, not my favourite cloud in the least!
Wow – even three talismans in one shot. Lucky you!
I beg to differ! 5 feet of flood water in your house?!!? And, for the third time?
I can feel with your friends, it’s a tragic story, indeed. But it has little to do with this three tiny elusive horseshoe vortices, which are so rare even sole. I think this picture really needs to be appreciated.
Try making my friends appreciate this type of cloud when their houses, businesses and livelihoods have been totally ruined!
“Black Puffies”, as I call them, are clouds not to be enjoyed in the least!
With no apology whatsoever, try appreciating these clouds when your house, living room and kitchen is under feet of polluted water!
The Cumulonimbus is the background, not the reason for this pict.
And now to something completely different … I really don’t wanna discuss anymore.
I can’t remember any warm words you’ve said for possible victims when you comment dramatic clouds, which really are able to cause a lot of hazard. So please stop moving on thin ice.
Warm words? I believe in direct action.
Myself, and several friends, worked damn hard to raise £15k for the Philippines’ disaster après Tsunami; £5k for flooded Somerset folk a few years ago, and now, some money coming in to support the flooded folk up North of the UK.
I am not moving on thin ice! Warm words? I believe in action – and direct at that.
You twist my words.
You act as this forum is yours.
There are actually 39,838 members in this society. Give the other members the space they need to enjoy this society.
This picture is the first one, that a member sent. It shows a unusual rare cloud. I’ve shown my appreciation.
This is not the right place for a personal fight.
Nothing more to say.
This forum is not in any way mine – I am just a regular contributor. All members have opportunity to contribute if they so wish. There is nothing to stop them – there is plenty of space to do. Of the 39,000+ how many of them do so? Very few, sorry to say.
Thank you for contributing this photo, Mike, from Member Number 36,918.
The Horseshoe vortex I don’t remember seeing before since I have been a more recent member & one not that knowledgeable about meteorology , so appreciate seeing them & the meteorology explained further on The Cloud Appreciation Society.
Some of the occasional past photos with the tornados have been very dramatic &, as a non-storm chaser, I would not have seen them otherwise.
I love the photos with predominantly B & W tones, as are in Mike’s photo.
Please continue to post more photos, Mike, for the benefit of all Members, those that write & those that don’t but appreciate the view anyway……Joanne
