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.

Did some backyard camping and got to enjoy a rainbow in one direction and a beautiful sunset in the other. These photos were captured at the same moment!
Thanks @Bobbiesworld626 for being there and beautiful captures!
I feel such an equally wondrous and unfortunate attachment to my home.

This thread seems quite appropriate right now. It's been 25 days since I've gone into my office. I've only left the house a few times aside from walking around the neighborhood. If there's a silver lining for me to this whole corona madness, it's that I've become much more interested in walking around my neighborhood. I've found that there are tons of great places to explore from right out my front door. In just a half mile I can be way up high walking pavement through the fancy houses. A little further and I'm on public land. A new favorite I hiked yesterday and today led me to a great little peak that gives me views from Utah County to Box Elder County and almost everything in between. And It's only a little more than a 3 mile walk from my front door! And if I drive to it, it's barely more than a mile.

Consider this my COVID-19 trip report as of day 25 of isolation...

From our balcony the other day. We always look forward to the return of the buzzards each year, they fly over our house every morning and hang out in the dead tree across the pasture below our house.

Winter was really slow to arrive here and now has not wanted to leave.

Photos from last week and some.

Yesterday. first day of real sun in a while. High of 24 degrees so not much melting. Snow depth is about 2 feet. the piles are from digging out a path for the camper and a trailer.

Snowing last week. We received a foot over a few days but it was heavy and compressed pretty quickly.

Ice and snow sliding off the roof and taking the eaves, facia, and gutter with it. I'll be installing ice guards this summer.

Monday's drive to work. Felt like I was in Wyoming with the crosswind.

Our son (lives in Fairbanks, AK) said that the snow was deep enough in their yard to build WWI-like trenches for snowball fights. The grandkids had a blast ... and a unique experience for them since the snow is usually too dry and fluffy (or frozen rock solid) for snowballs or snow forts, etc.
