Cloud Appreciation


In this humorous and factual tour of the skies, Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of The Cloud Appreciation Society argues that we dont appreciate clouds enough. The book introduces each of the different characters in the cloud family, pointing out which are the predictors of fine weather, and which of unsettled. It tells us of clouds being used to predict earthquakes, and of one type of cloud in Australia that glider pilots surf like a wave! We were gifted this little gem making it Bluefinger’s first official gift. Thanks Clare. Chapter illustrations by Bill Sanderson. This example above is from Chapter 2, The Cumulonimbus, the towering thundercloud that brings extreme and destructive weather. An essential read for all those with their heads in the clouds.
