Clouds

Day 7, Saturday, October 31: We had slept off and on until finally we sensed daybreak. We looked out at the early signs of light to see if the clouds were breaking up. We always watched the clouds. The clouds told us where the weather fronts were coming from and what we could predict. If the precipitation was heavy we looked for signs of puffy clouds moving quickly, perhaps with small breaks of sky shining through. And in contrast, the weather worsened as the clouds thickened to a more solid gray color. This thick murky cover with dark cumulus clouds hanging over the ridge was the worst. So in the wee hours of the morning the sky was still monotonous, dull white seamlessly blending with the snow white covered mountains. go to hands
