Growing up I remember laying on the grass and gazing up at the big puffy clouds as they drifted across the sky Even now when I go back home Utah I m amazed at how much dramatic the sky often seems compared to where I currently live Unfortunately or fortunately depending upon how you look at it Los Angeles seems to have rather boring skies clear and blue day after day after day Except for those darn jet contrailsThis was a very pleasant book that looks at 10 main cloud types Pretor Pinney discusses the different variations and how they form and he does it all in a very casual manner no stuffy textbook here The book is loaded with anecdotes and amusing asides which made it a charming read but also a little tedious at times And he can find the silver lining of any cloud even the heavy and oppressive nimbostratus And yes he even discusses those darn jet contrails the man made cloud graffiti on the heavens In fact he discusses it at great length not just the environmental aspects and why they seem to linger longer than they used to but he takes that topic down a rabbit hole about cloud seeding Overall a charming and pleasant if occasionally meandering book the kind you want to own so you can pull it out every once in a while 35 stars
