I confess an interest in tornados. Recently, I did some reading online about causation and formation. There are lots of pictures. A few days after, late afternoon, the sky took on a look I’d never seen -- low layers of black and high layers of white. At the bottom of one area I noticed a charcoal-colored, circular swirling pattern. Would I see a funnel form, here in Los Angeles?
But absence of noise and wind, as well as an airplane flying directly beneath the swirling area confirmed these were just clouds in the sky. Shapes changed by minute and the clouds moved west, gone within an hour. I didn’t think to grab my camera until the show was nearly over, but here’s what I saw.
One week from today I’ll be up in the clouds, on my way to France.
