On my way home tonight, I was just in awe of the sky. There was a large ominous cloud that was overtaking the sun. Behind it you could see the rain coming down just west of where I was. It reminded me of a great book I read recently called The Cloudspotter’s Guide by Gavin Pretor-Pinney. The author is also the Founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society.
The nice part about this book is that it’s chocked full of science and yet I didn’t feel it was over my head. I also liked that it included a lot of historical background. I highly recommend it if your into clouds and weather.
