    This morning I saw what looked like a tiny cumulonimbus.

    Had all the look, but was just a little fella. I got a picture, then forgot about it until just now.

    The chance that single hailstone would have hit me was low, but it was not zero.

    Do NOT fly within 200 nm of it. Best to stay on the ground when the sky looks like that.

    I guess it takes a lot more imagination to see different kinds of clouds in clouds than it does to see animals in clouds. o_O

    "What is the difference between a Scotsman and Mick Jagger?"

    One goes around saying "Hey, you, get off my cloud..."

    There’s old pilots, there’s bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots. Good call op.

    Oh, it was a little fella. Noticed it while taking a walk and got the pic so you guys would think I was cool.

    I may have misjudged.
