Clouds are droplets of water and ice, some look ominous, some look nice- Spending on how the sun reflects, White, grey or black colors your eye will detect- Clouds may be at any height above ground, all different shapes - flat, oval or round- You see many kinds of them up in the air, lets look at some and try to compare- CUMULOUS CLOUDS seldom bring squalls, are vertically formed like water falls, and often resemble fluffy cotton balls, Some see them as popcorn popped high in the air- About 6,000 feet up-being higher is rare- Stratus CLOUDS, they're flat you see, looking like spider webs strung tree to tree, or like stretched out taffy between you and me, Gray in color these cloud lie low- But can still bring hill fog and drizzles though- CIRRUS CLOUDS far away they lie, with an altitude at least 20,000 feet high, mostly ice crystals floating up in the sky, Appearing like thin wispy curls of hair- They indicate weather change, but usually fair- NIMBUS CLOUDS are full of water and frightening, as their looming dark towers begin heightening, accompanied by loud thunder and lightning, Warning that soon rain's going to be here - Their distance away can be far or near-
