Care to identify the cloud type for us?
I love clouds.

Did you know that there is a Cloud Appreciation Society? They have a mailing list with a daily cloud picture.

Did you know there are dozens if not hundreds of different types of clouds in the scientific classification system that ranks them as genera and species?
https://public.wmo.int/en/WorldMetDay2017/classifying-clouds (I haven't found a total number of identified clouds to reinforce my memory of hundreds)

Did you know that our very own BCP has a photo forum just for clouds? (ok it is for weather and storms too but clouds rule the roost)

Nick besides the incredible view from your house I have often admired your deck. I remember seeing pictures when you were building it. What decking material and color did you choose when building it? What railing system did you use? Are the balusters iron? I am thinking of replacing my deck soon.

Thanks! The decking is Fiberon Symmetry in Warm Sienna. The railing is Westbury Tuscany aluminum railing. It’s been up for almost 2 years now and it’s still doing great. We’re really happy with how it turned out.

The heat and humidity of midsummer are at full strength here. Tonight a few short lived but impressive looking thunderstorms blew up as sunset approached. They are now disappearing back into the air from which they came.

Overslept pretty badly today (rotating shift problems) but upon waking up, there was a small airshow going on over my house. Sprayplane was working in the field surrounding my house.

Lisa, my wife, spotted this black & yellow garden spider, Thanks! Google, in the rosemary bushes around noon today.
For an added attraction, Lisa's tiny roses are blooming. Thanks for looking!

Sunrise from the deck this morning (been up most of the night, rotating shift worker problems).

This morning the first guys were out fishing after the local lake thawed out! They definitely got the 6 ft distance memo.

Only saw 1 of the 4 Bald Eagles today, but a King Fisher is back, there's a lonely White Swan, lots of Common Merganser.

A few days ago 4 Bald Eagles (adult and juveniles) were circling over the lake. They frequently fly right over the yard too. I watched the Adult Eagle catch a fish, fly to a favorite tree and eat it in peace. Hope to soon see the Ospreys back too.
