Altocumulus (lower left) and cirrocumulus (all the rest) on another hot day, 31° in the shade. Poor grocery delivery driver said it was 33° in his cab - no air conditioning.
Can't get my head around the fact that it's so hot down here, and heat rises, yet those cirrocumulus clouds will be at least 20,000 feet up, formed from ice crystals or super-cooled water.

No clouds today - not one! I've included the sun and some vegetation in this photo, or it would be just a blue square.
The Cloud Appreciation Society's manifesto includes the words,I'm hoping for some clouds tomorrow, even if only a few little ones. And some rain. It hasn't rained for days. The garden is parched.
We pledge to fight ‘blue-sky thinking’ wherever we find it. Life would be dull if we had to look up at cloudless monotony day after day.
