The Perfect Storm

So, being the dorky person that I am, even my social networking is full of newsworthy science, technology, and other exciting headlines. A colleague of mine posted this video of an amazing storm in Australia on facebook, and I thought I'd share it with you all. It is the perfect example of how spatially variable weather is, how clouds form by linking dust particles in the sky with water vapor, and just how awe-inspiring nature can be.

Note the height of the clouds, the color of the clouds, and the severity of the rain.

Check out the video!
