On Nature’s Rorschach Blot

A group of fast-moving storm clouds have moved over Baltimore in the past hour.

These clouds are dark.

I finished writing an article for work about Halo Wars and glanced out the window. I thought the world was gloomy, but nothing could have prepared me for this.

The cloud looked like a dragon.

The dragon had a head, complete with beak and crest, and there were wings, and it was flying toward the northeast.

I know, clouds are like nature’s rorschach blot, but still.

You expect to see cows or Otto von Bismark. You don’t expect to ever see a dragon fly overhead.

At least he wasn’t spitting fire.

It’s actually, now that I think about it, not that gloomy. Dark, yes. But not gloomy.

Supposedly, we may see snow tomorrow. Blech.
