Cool Clouds: Looking Forward to Cloudy Days

Remember those long, lazy summer days from your childhood? Remember lying on the ground, looking up at shape-shifting clouds, and looking for recognizable outlines? A frog. A fish.  A  unicorn.

It’s been a long time since I’ve done that. But it wasn’t too long ago that I marveled at the fluffy cumulus clouds standing out against a pure blue summer sky as I drove along a wide, open highway.

We’re most likely to notice clouds in summer. And we’re most likely to appreciate the scattered cumulus variety. But take a look at this wintery stratus sheet. It’s lovely too. Really beautiful.

February is supposedly the cloudiest month here in New England. Most years I dread it. I’m glad it’s just 28 days. But this year is leap year, and I’m looking forward to every, single cloudy day—even that extra one.
