Fair weather vortex
This striking cloud pattern brought me up short yesterday at noontime as I prepared to head for Whataburger to bring home our traditional Sunday lunch. So much so that I immediately headed back into the house to get my camera and record the odd phenomenon.
Presume this to have been a visual manifestation of either a localized low- or high-pressure system — not sure which. In any case, we missed out later that evening on the rainstorms that brought much-needed moisture to points both east and west.
More’s the pity!
