Looked Impossible

For some reason I have problems learning and  retaining information about clouds.

My truck insisted we stop at Ingram Hill on the way home from town. Obviously, I’m glad it did.

These clouds gradually drifted in from the west.

How could there be long wispy ones, with ladder-like ones above?

Their appearance completely changed by the time we got home (1 1/4 miles away).

I don’t even know enough to even make a guess about what I saw, and I didn’t find anything resembling them in a weather field guide.

Any information about them would be appreciated.

  2. I can’t remember ever seeing clouds like that. I know the names of a few types but not those.

  3. Terrific effects in these photos. Must have been windy high up in the atmosphere.
