Have you seen this site? http://www.cloudappreciationsociety.org/a/about/manifesto.html


I knew there was a book by that name but I hadn't seen the website. Thanks!


1. how many different types of clouds are there?
2. have you seen all the types?
3. what is your favorite cloud (other than Mistermeticus)?


can you recommend some cloud books for my library, grades k-5?


That Mr. Met really gets around--today he is featured on the front page of the Sunday Styles section in the NY Times!


Mr. Met signifies the epitome of style!

There are ten basic cloud types:

high clouds -
cirrus, cirrostratus and cirrocumulus

middle -
altostratus, altocumulus

low -
stratus, stratocumulus, nimbostratus

clouds of vertical development -
cumulus, cumulonimbus

There are other, less common, cloud types but the above are the most frequently seen. Several types of clouds can be in the sky at any one time. At sunset this evening there were stratocumulus, altocumuls and cirrus clouds.

I do not have a favorite cloud. I once had a pet cloud named Harold but it got away.

I do not know of any cloud books for kids.
