Norad: I'll take "People Who Don't Know A Goddamn Thing About Cloud Formations" for $2000, Alex.

If lenticular clouds can take me on a vacation for cheap, I don't care who is flying the damn cloud. Anything but Disney or people with cartoon characters all over their backs.

How intriguing.

I read the comments on there and they've been mistaken as UFOs by people, apparently.

Please refrain from shooting at the clouds it will only anger the invisible sky wizard.

Either lenticular clouds, street lights, or sub-orbital staging and delivery systems typically utilized by the reptilian Anunaki.

Nothing to see here, folks. Just the light from Venus reflecting off a weather balloon through some swamp gas. Move along.

Coincidentally, the term 'Flying Saucers' stems from Kenneth Arnold's eyewitness report of UFOs he saw whilst flying around Mt. Rainer.

OMG EVERYBODY PANIC!

Mebbe the aliens are off to Enumclaw to have a horse abuse them.

I'm off to Beth's Cafe to have a 12 egg omelet - I need to please our new overlords.

/It's a cookbook!

Could you just leave the aliens alone? They might be here to pick me up.

I saw the awesome rotor clouds downwind of Mt. Rainier last night and thought the same thing as subby. One of the local TV stations did an excellent job explaining that the cap cloud (seen close to the crown of Mt. Rainier) was setting up the turbulence east of the mountain that causes the rotor clouds -- link to King5 video (new window).

These areas are VERY high turbulence if you're flying through them. I haven't checked the NOTAMs but my guess is that east-west flights are finding it quite bumping while crossing the Cascades coming into Seattle. These mountain wave effects will sometimes carry on for hundreds of miles.

I've seen those before, Tazmanian Devils, they are. That they've learned to fly worries me.

Shouldn't they have used a disguise that didn't actually look like their ships?

Flying saucers and chem-trails. Conspiracy theorists rejoice!

No. They're from Mu. Possibly from Argattha.

How to forecast weather in the Puget Sound:

If you can't see Mt Rainier, it's raining
If you can see Mt Rainier, it's about to rain


in late braking news, subby can't spell Rainier.
 
2008-12-06 10:53:09 AM  
can I be forgiven if I didn't know what a lenticular cloud was?

in other news, of course once I get the snow shovelled I find out the invasion is imminent :(

I loves me some Mt. Rainier.

I grew up in flat-as-a-pancake south Louisiana. I was stationed at Ft. Lewis when I was a soldier, and loved looking at the mountain. I had a great view of it from my room. In the summer, I used to get up early to watch the sun rise from behind it. Then I'd watch it in the evening, lit up from the west by the setting sun.

Yeah, yeah, lame, I know, but if you don't grow up with it, it is something really cool.

Whoah, whoah, whoah, whoah, whoah...

I live near Beth's Cafe and am in need of a cinnamon bun. Let's bounce.

In other spectacular atmospheric occurrences, did anyone catch that sunset over Green Lake last night? Or from anywhere else in town? I've seen some good ones but was particularly blown away at how goddamn pink and bright this one was.

As someone who lives in the Orting Valley, and near a Lahar Siren, I'm getting a kick out of these replies. I look at the mountain every morning, hoping it doesn't wipe out my house by the end of the day.
