Before sunset yesterday a troop of strange cirrus clouds came floating across the inlet. Like parachutes or jelly fish in the air waving their long arms leaving dots of rain behind. Reminds me of the opening scene of the Star Wars episode “The Empire Strikes Back” where Imperial probe droids were slinking around the snow on the planet Hoth. Makes me wonder if the design of those spidery droids was inspired by a parachute cloud sighting?
