Cumulus Building

(Toledo, OH) This cumulus cloud, which is forming ahead of a line of thunderstorms, may later develop into a cumulonimbus cloud. For the moment, though, this fluffy, cotton-like meteorological formation provides me with a few minutes worth of cloud-watching.

For a while I saw the outline of the head of one of my dogs in this cloud, and then I made out a distinct image that resembled Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, the Marquis of Pombal. Naturally, cloud-watching is highly influenced by what we had been recently doing; in my case, chasing my dog and reading about the Pombaline dictatorship.
