This is a lenticular cloud, so called because of it's lens shape. It's an indication of high winds aloft, so while the morning weather is warm and still, it means weather is coming. I remember when I took geography that the textbook pictures of these clouds were taken right here on the high desert side of the Eastern Sierra.
And sure enough, this is the morning one day later. March appears to have come in like a lion and is going out like a lion. We were lucky on Sunday. Easter couldn't have been any nicer. The grandkids - five of them! - were able to hunt eggs outside. DS and I sat on the deck to visit and got a little sunburned, in March!
I'm half way done with the weaving on this lap blanket. I didn't trust my measurements after seeing how much yarn I was going through for the warp, and reduced the width by 4" - now it seems that my measurements were correct and I'll have leftover yarn. I'm just a little mad at me. The black is natural colored Corriedale and the gray is rainbow dyed gray Targhee/Corriedale. I have one more bump of the gray, which is all that's left of a 6 pound fleece. I'm going to spin it up, just so I can have the satisfaction of actually using an entire fleece. I hope to finish the weaving this weekend.
