Summer clouds


I can tell from the clouds that summer is tapering off into glorious autumn.

In summer, cotton-woolish cumulusnimbus clouds show who’s boss with thunderstorms, hail and lightning. It isn’t fun driving in these conditions because visibility reduces to almost nil, in some cases golf-ball sized hailstones seriously dent many cars.

The rain is warm, of short duration, and it’s also the time when many electrical appliances get taken out by lightning.

Despite the intensity of these storms, I will miss them during the colder months…because for as long as there’s cumulusnimbus clouds in the sky, there is summer on the ground.
