Mammatus clouds, because they have upside-down bumps that some people think look like breasts. They are usually around severe thunderstorms and I once saw them forming just before I was getting ready to make a skydive. I pondered the wisdom of it, but I went anyway. I sure wish I hadn't gone, since the turbulence I experienced under canopy has never been forgotten. My canopy would collapse and reinflate in a terrible fashion, and there was nothing to do but land. I hurt my right knee when I landed, bursting the bursa sac and having a huge swollen knee for a month. Now when I see these clouds, I remember that day.

The wind is blowing hard enough to make the lights flicker every now and then, so I figure I'd better get this post up in case the power goes. My friend Judy and I will go to the movies this afternoon, and until then I'm going to enjoy being inside, warm and cozy with Smart Guy.
