I got interested in clouds when looking at various photos and videos of the time shortly before and shortly after Madeleine McCann disappeared.
I was trying to work out if you can determine anything from them, absolutely anything, about the weather.
Wind direction and speed is the one that really fires me up, but how about location, date, time of day, sun position, temperature, and of course clouds.
Here is today’s piccy of the clouds across Portelas.
I thought “It’s going to rain”, so I scuttled about trying to sort everything necessary out before the downpour. Except it didn’t rain. The clouds have disappeared and we now have a pristine blue sky.
This tells you how much I know about how the weather works.
