Kelvin-Helmholtz cloud phenomenon

As much as I'd love to, I don't think I can (or had better) use the correct name for the cloud formation either in the title bar or in the body of this post.

Read the article, and check out the stunning photo to see the name given to this stunning cloud formation.

I ain’t never seen one of those but I did take a photo of one of these in Sandy Hook, N.J. 

Called a Sun Dog.


Just before the big full moon, we had huge winds and big piles of grey clouds. There was a big temperature drop, too, overnight probably related to that cold weather you had, marksierra. 
Thankfully it’s a bit better today, still windy but not at gale strength. The clouds aren’t as pretty, though


A stray thought - I wonder if any of the weather would be affected by the earthquakes - pre- or post-? Would Max know?

I would think that the only way an earthquake could permanently affect the weather would be if the quake threw up a large mountain range - or flattened one.  Terraforming on a mass scale, if you will.

Oh, and and a temporary effect could happen if there was a large fire as a result of, say, downed power lines and broken gas lines.  The resulting fire could generate its own weather in the form of pyrocumulonimbus clouds - https://youtu.be/uIyaka3N3Tg
