Storm Clouds, 8/21/13

Forgot to put this one up the other day. We had some dramatic clouds just before our big storm.

  1. meh… mid-afternoon thunder boomer here. The standard forcast for late spring, summer, and most of fall is “hot and humid with a possibility of late afternoon or early evening thunders storms”. Sure enough… they get it right for once ;-)

  2. Wow, I’m gunna have to look at my unused monitor’s bottom to see one of its sexes is s video, and if so buy an s video cable and hang that monitor in portrait mode.
    It /would/ be cool to have screen that is oriented like a document, but, now that I think about it, I don’t recall any settings in the graphics drivers that would rotate the image to display it properly. Time for third party software, I guess

    But, I mean, both my desktop images feature clouds? And awesome cloud pic.

  3. For the Scalzi household, time to join The Cloud Appreciation Society appears to have arrived. (Member No. 32,935 reporting here).

    Silly of me to wonder whether ‘The Cloud Appreciation Society” is a real thing.
    Best cloud I’ve ever seen was kind of egg shaped with the longer axis vertical. Inside it I saw some flashes of lightning: the flashes would move about in an area that was maybe 5% of its total for a short time, and do so again somewhere else near the vertical middle of it.
    I’m pretty sure that this wasn’t this century, and I only watched it for about half a minute, partly because I suddenly remembered how far away from a storm lightning can strike.

  5. Be cause thread closed before I saw=

    After reading whole thing about feminist and regency era dress… I quickly went back to photo to scan for a ring. Why are the only guys worth having already taken????
    I know not some deep intellectual response just what I thought right after reading.

  6. Hey John–this is a really awesome photo. Would you mind if I try to make it into a drawing? What’s your copyright/usage policy on photos?

    As I, who so very ain’t Mr. Scalzi understand it? Don’t do anything that interferes with his income, but feel free to have fun.
    Because pie is almost as good as fun.

    I think a language barrier.
    >–snip– Why are the only guys worth having already taken?- -snip–

    It is how you are looking. Throw out how you are seeing guys, and give worthless fools ten seconds (not fifteen ;p) of your eyesight.

  9. I have fun with, lead to I discovered exactly what I was looking for.
    You have ended my 4 day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day.
