 Yesterday morning my wife commanded me to come to her room and bring my camera, pronto!

Being as she is She Who Must Be Obeyed (SWMBO), I responded with alacrity.

Also with my camera.

She directed me to her slider door and said "Look at these clouds."

I did and this is what I saw, peeping over our neighbors' HVAC unit.

Waffle Clouds!

The odd and unusual pattern, we surmised, must have resulted from contrails left by many aircraft passing high over our turf.

We are in an area that sees planes overhead flying into and out of Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and Las Vegas.

And a little to the left of this mix, there was proof of our theory.

The sighting of those "waffle clouds" had an effect on me.

Early this morning I went to our freezer and pulled out a previously baked item for my morning breakfast.

(In answer to Robin's post yesterday, that gives me "hope". 😘)


  1. What a great set of clouds. Every now and then I see something like that down here but not very often.

  2. What a great contrail formation there! You could submit that to the Cloud Appreciation Society. They love this kind of stuff, clouds and contrails that look like things. Yes, hope in the sky!
    Your waffle looks quite yummy. Now I want one.

  3. Looks like a real life 'windows' screen saver from all those years ago.

  4. Those clouds are stunning and I love waffles!

  5. I haven't had a waffle in decades and now I think I want one!

  6. If you look at the first picture, it almost says "hi" in it (or at least that is what I'm seeing :) Oh my gosh, that waffle looks delicious!!


  7. Waffles. MMMM Waffles.

    The clouds are crazy.

  8. Tic-Tac-Toe. Not as tasty as a waffle.

  9. I have NEVER seen clouds like that. Of course we don't have so many planes flying over us down here.
    I don't like waffles.

  10. Waffle clouds, now that is a delicious first.

  11. Definitely criss-crossing contrails, I'd say. Very peculiar! (And delicious!)
