    Accuweather called them mammatus clouds. Personally, I had never heard of them before. Apparently they appear frequently around areas where there is a risk of a tornado or severe weather in general. Here's a link to Wikipedia if you want to read more.

      Personally I'd be pretty nervous if I saw that sky - it's really creepy, like someone is poking around up there!

      Well, we actually left on a trip (in the direction of the storm) shortly after snapping this picture. The rain was quite torrential at times. Lots of standing water on the road and very windy.

      You never heard of mammatus clouds? I remember sniggering ab't them in 9th grade earth science class. We get them around here every so often, mostly before or after strong thunderstorms.

      I guess you and I are just out of the loop; I never heard of mammatus clouds either. They are rather entertaining.
