mackerel sky



when the sky looked like this my grandmother used to look up and say, "look at that mackerel sky!"

she constantly practiced taking joy in the simple, natural wonders of the world around us.

yesterday morning my husband and I had a whole skyfull of stripey clouds to keep us company on our ride to work.

i told hubs it's called a mackerel sky and how my grandmother used to love them. hubs told me they are called altocumulus clouds which i probably knew once but he remembers these kinds of things forever.

then he told me when he was little he used to call it a "bacon sky." i liked that name and I always like learning things about the 17 years of hubs' life before we met.


did you know a sky full of these clouds can also be called a buttermilk sky?

  1. This implies that popular on-line poker websites like Bodog or Pokerstars do NOT have a legal on-line presence in Korea. In September 2021, Paradise Company reported revenues of 9.forty nine billion Korean received due primarily to heavy restrictions on incoming traffic. Additional measures hampered casino revenues, together with social distancing for indoor entertainment venues and the pandemic. However, fuelling the fast and unprecedented growth in GGR for this South Korean operator and GKL are eased visa entry restrictions by way of October 배트맨토토 31, 2022, courtesy of the South Korean government. The playing license a casino operates beneath will have a big impact|a big impact|a massive effect} in your security. Not all licenses are equally safe for gamers for the straightforward cause that they are issued by different playing authorities that work in numerous ways and have different rules.
