t looks like a painting but is actually a photo by Doug Sudduth. There was a major occurrence of lenticular clouds on September 9th visible especially
in Spruce Pine and Little Switzerland, as well as Bakersville. Doug shot these from Wing Road, looking south toward the Black Mountain range and Mt. Mitchell. According to Doug, "A realtor-friend from Little Switzerland left me a phone message saying, "there are spaceships everywhere here. If we're not here tomorrow, they got us." A neighbor from Conley Ridge Road quoted her husband, as she called him, "I'm sitting here in the road in my truck watching these crazy clouds." In my experience these clouds can occur preceding/during a weather transition, like the cold front that was passing through."

This little one was standing in the road one morning last week. He jumped to the side and began munching on some flowers.
