Word of the Day
Lenticular Cloud
Lenticular clouds are only seen around mountains. These strange clouds are easy to spot, because they look like flying saucers or a stack of pancakes. Their most interesting characteristic is that they don’t move. Winds blow right through them, while other clouds are swept away.
Advice of the Day
To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.
Home Hint of the Day
