Here is what I wrote in my journal June 13, 2011
San Diego, California, USA
"First thing today I noticed the sunlight is different and the clouds are looming in dense dark waves across the ocean. All through the day, the
surface of the Pacific and the bay grew midnight blue. I've lived here all my life, half a century. I've never seen this before. First
impression: we're under a shadow."
Of course, we were under the shadow of that cloud. But, this shadow was so dark, I wondered at the content of the cloud that cast it.
"I think of all the volcanoes going off around the world, all the wildfires burning, and all the fire and smoke of so many wars filling up the
atmosphere over our heads; it's all around us. We're taught about nuclear winters and winters caused by single volcanoes such as Krakatoa. There
are at least three large volcanoes in disparate parts of the planet venting themselves into our atmosphere right now."
So I was attributing the cloud to pollution, basically.
Commentary here leads me to think these clouds are a more natural weather phenomenon, however. I know the weather patterns have changed here since I
was a child (along with the local ecosystem in general). To me, each season seems to be coming sooner every year. Now, I'm thinking these cloud
formations are just part of that change.
