What clouds do you think the song "little fluffy clouds" was about?

This is something which was niggling me today - I'm sure - based purely on clues in the sampled lyrics of the song - that she must be talking about Alto Castelanus or some derivative cloud based on high instability.

Just thought it might make for a good discussion and an interesting bit of pondering on what is also a great tune!

An awesome tune, I only pictured fair weather Cu with it but true, listening about sunsets, would be something more

I'd only ever imagined it to be about Cumulus humilis but now the topic has been raised I can see it could also be about Ac Castellanus or even floccus.

I must dig it out and listen again.

Ah yes probably floccus - I remember a friend of ours being completely transfixed by a sky load of floccus last year when we went for a walk - it was completely amazing to look at as all the clumps of cloud were almost identical to each other

    Dubai Floods: Another Warning Sign for Desert Regions?

    The flooding in the Middle East desert city of Dubai earlier in the week followed record-breaking rainfall.
