These are Mammatus clouds, aptly named for their resemblance to udders.
It's still not well understood how they actually form, so in a sense, these sky-butts (as I like to call them) represent the cutting edge in our meteorological knowledge.
This is just a little blog where I will post the best of the stuff I find on the web. Be it funny, amazing, incredible or interesting. Hopefully there will be enough stuff of interest here for you to fill out the email subscription form and receive a daily dose of Carly in your inbox ;-)
