Extraordinary Natural Phenomena


Recommended Posts

These clouds look ferocious with storm alarm but often they do not result in any storm or even a rain. Actually, these clouds are similar to the normal clouds. However, when they are caught up in high altitude jet streams, they form fancy shapes. You may not feel the wind but actually, these winds in high altitude carry the cloud out of your area.

In high altitude areas with lots of snowy mountains, the snow wheels are formed. These snow wheels are formed by natural friction. When a cloud hits the mountain and condenses into snow, the peaks are flooded with mass of snow. These snow rolls down the icy mountain surface. The friction causes the snow to form a wheel like structure while the icy temperature makes it solid by freezing water formed with the frictional heat.

too long for  those who grieve; too short for those who rejoice.

But for those who love, time is eternity."
