the cloud cometh

Sat, Jun 13, 2009

With all that gear stuff out of the way, I’m now free to stare at the clouds again and what superb Cirrus we had yesterday afternoon:

Cirrus over Beinn Sgritheall

but as you know, Cirrus often precedes a front and lots more, lower, rain bearing cloud. Which is indeed what happening by sunset, which was around 11pm!

Stratus over Beinn Sgritheall

That stratus gave us quite heavy overnight rain.
