A Washboard Sky

A Washboard Sky - London, Ontario, Canada

Not sure what caused this 'washboard' cloud formation over London, Ontario. A quick Google search produced very little information. It definitely makes for an interesting photograph.

Physics would suggest that something wave-like is happening. There is a frequency, a wavelength, involved.

The washboard image evokes early New Orleans blues and jazz and inspires the following lyrics.

Washboard clouds on the western skyline
Bass drum thumps the beat
Tuba lays down the chord progression
Saxophone adds the heat.
