This is a lone a finger cloud. Specifically it’s called an undulatus cloud formed by an atmospheric wave. The cylinder you are seeing is caused by the rising/sinking air around the cloud.

Houston From Space

Hotshots5

Texas from space. The Expedition 36 crew on the International Space Station took this picture 240 miles above the Earth with a 50mm lens. You can clearly see Houston on the bottom right hand part of the screen. Can you see Galveston, Beaumont, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas? Oklahoma city is tough to see because of thunderstorms.

Dust Devils In Katy
August 10, 2011

Photo by: Jen Blackburn, Cinco Ranch

You don’t see to many of these in southeast Texas, but a dust devil formed in Katy.  You’ll usually see these in the desert southwest where it is hot and dry, but our weather has resembled more of a desert this year than the tropical climate we are used to.  Dust devils form on hot, dry days.  The surface of the ground is hot and that air is less dense than the “cooler” air around it, so it begins to rise.  Because of the uneven surface heating, it rises in bubbles.  Cooler air from above rushes to fill the voids left by the bubbles and causes a spin.  These are different from tornadoes because tornadoes form from the base of thunderstorm clouds and rotate toward the ground.  Dust devils are almost always weak, from a few miles per hour to 70 mph at the most, and rarely cause damage.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day was created to honor the men and women who have served in the military. Hopefully, you have your own traditions for this special day, but if not, here’s a list of things to do on Memorial Day:

Write a member of the military.  There are thousands of men and women actively serving in the military. Visit http://amillionthanks.org/, to find out how you can write them and brighten their day.

Fly the US Flag.  Flying the flag is a great way to say thanks and show your support. Also, if you have a POW/MIA flag, this is also a great day to fly it.

Participate in the National Moment of Remembrance.  At 3 p.m. local time on each Memorial Day, pause for one minute to remember those who have given their all for us.

Thank a veteran.  Take time out of your day to stop and thank someone who has served our country in the military. So many veterans say that a simple act of gratitude means more to them than most people realize.

All weekend long, we talked about coastal flooding for Brazoria and Galveston counties. The waters get like this from the combination of strong easterly and southerly winds piling the water up along the coast, not from rain.

An old barn out here in Cut N Shoot. The sky was really wicked between 5ish until dusk, beautiful but wicked, it had swirling clouds and many colors painted the sky.   The lighting was just amazing.
