Mamma Comes to Visit

At least the latest round of rain in New York produced a rare weather phenomenon - this very unusual cloud formation known as Mamma clouds. Unusually - as was the case this evening - these clouds occur in connection with heavy-duty showers that also produce plenty of thunder and lighting. The lucky ones are the people on that jet who have window seats and a camera and are able to get some photos of these clouds from 30 - thousand feet.

Here's how it looked as seen a few miles away at Citi Field where the Mets were hosting the Yankees after a one hour rain delay. The TV cameras captured the beautiful scene as the sun was setting and illuminating the rare cloud formation over the ballpark.
