I love the clouds in the winter time.
Went down to Magnolia Pier to catch the sunset on Wednesday evening but the clouds rolled and it made the light beautiful.
Last September we wrote about the rare undulatus asperatus clouds over Gloucester Harbor. According to WBZ-TV chief meterologist Eric Fisher, they were recognized by the Wold Meteorological Organization in March as an official cloud formation. The clouds could be seen over Boston the past few days. You can see a photos of the wavy formations here: Good Morning Gloucester Undulatus Asperitus.

Beautiful radical variations till the clouds rolled by (roughly 6:05-6:18 AM) before I met with clients in Boston and Beverly. There were some snowflakes but when I returned to Gloucester at 1pm, the roads were dry and an even pale sky.
You couldn’t help but notice yesterday morning’s dramatic cloud formations. Facebook Friends have been posting from several different times of the day and these photos were taken around 7am. I am so curious and tried looking it up although it was all a bit confusing. Its fun to say undulatus asperatus, but that’s only a guess. Do we have any cloud experts that would like to write and let us know?
Glorious clouds pressing down upon the harbor this morning–solid and simplified. Reminded me of Canadian painter, Lawren C Harris.
