Winter in LA may not bring snow (well, I guess it did this year) or ice storms, but our winter weather does create some amazing scenes. After rain last night, this strange cloud ceiling was hovering over Manhattan Beach today. The oddest thing about it was that you could see the edge in every direction, with crystal clear bright skies underneath it on all sides. Hardly a cloud could be seen beyond the patch, and the patch itself had the appearance of being completely solid. A couple hours later it had split apart into more typical puffy clouds, but for a while, it was if the mother ship was hovering over us.
