While I was in NYC last week, I experienced along with millions of NYers an amazing cloud formation visible during the early night sky. After a brief thunderstorm, the sky displayed the most unusual clouds I've ever seen.
I learned today these clouds are called Mamatis. The clouds looked like peachy-colored cotton candy. I was walking with my sister-friend of over 20 years, and her 17 year old son. I'm grateful to have experienced this with them. I adore Joslyn and Marco. We decided, along with other NYers, to stop and take pictures of the sky. We had to pause and appreciate the spectacle.
All of NYC was veiled in a hue of orange light. It was so surreal. I felt as if I was in a dream. While I respect the science behind these rare cloud formations, I also felt it was divine intervention reminding us to stop and take in wonderment. Here are the pics from my cell phone camera.
