Gravity Tides or Gravity Waves
The undulating pattern of a Gravity Wave is caused by air displaced in the vertical plain, usually as a result of updrafts coming off the mountains or during thunderstorms. Nature then tries to restore the fluid changes caused by updrafts within the atmosphere, which present in a visible oscillating pattern within the cloud.

HH: I thought it was New Mexico, but if it is Bolivia, I might just like it there too.
Name that Cloud
We went to the movies yesterday and I saw this really unusual cloud. We spent sometime trying to see different images in it.
One person saw a jawbone. I saw a Viking Longboat headed toward a whirlpool. Someone else saw piano keys.
I wish it were a better photo, but it is interesting to see how different minds work and what fanciful images we can see all around us.
P.S. We saw “A Million Ways to Die in the West," and I wish we had seen "Blended”.
