It was probably a practice run for when they go to bomb out the Moskey dock. :lol:

This might be sour grapes on my part, but I feel IR is a place low flying jets should avoid...I accept the high altitude jets flying over and of course the seaplane, but why intentionally destroy the quiet with stunts?

Even though these very unusual cloud formations occurred today, I considered waiting until April 1st to make my post but that was just too far away. I figure I better "come clean" before someone gets someone in trouble. It was a fluke that I even caught this as the storm was moving so fast the formation only lasted for a couple of web cam cycles. Meteorologists often comment on how quickly changeable the weather is in the Lake Superior region.
