Today's morning cloud coverage

[Avenue A and St. Mark's Place]

Thank goodness there's social media for people to know whether it was (or is!) cloudy outside. This morning's clouds were particularly photogenic ... and maybe a little creepy ... or menacing... threatening? Whatever! Probably just a metaphor for life anyway.

And here is a panoramic view via EVG Facebook friend Chris Protopapas...

Apparently these clouds are "Very Cool Nimbo Cumulus, not seen very often," per WABC 7 meteorologist Bill Evans.

I think the last time those clouds were seen in NY was in Ghostbusters!

That time when Mammatus Cumulus also formed over EV/NYC.

Mammatus > Nimbo
