Big storm hit the Mendonoma Coast today but in advance of the storm - an unusual cloud formation
You'd think it was winter on the Mendonoma Coast today. Wind and rain lashed the coast bringing some minor flooding. Seasonal creeks have come back to life, an amazing sight in June. But before this big storm hit, there was an unusual cloud formation. I thought it looked like a rocket ship in the sky.
One of the joys of living on the edge is we get to see weather systems approach. And the ocean will tell us in advance that a storm is on the way. The surface water will "change direction." The winds cause the ocean to appear as if it is flowing from south to north, rather than the normal north to south.
