Field of Clouds

Cloud rows2
I took this picture the other day descending into Tampa Florida.  The clouds were all lined up as far as one could see – just like rows of vegetables in a farmers field.  I've always been fascinated with clouds, but know little about them.  It just doesn’t seem possible that when a big old jet plane flies thru them that they don’t get blown away.  Sometimes the plane just glides right thru them and other times they make it a bumpy adventure.  Florida consistently has neat clouds to view.

Being a bit of a nerd myself, I became a weather forecaster, and those clouds are actually nicknamed "Cloud Streets". When it comes to forecasting, they tell you which way the wind is blowing (the same direction the lines are pointing!)

That's a great picture! I've seen some amazing lightning in Florida too
