In order to celebrate ending my military service, I decided to make a quiz. One of the things I had to learn was different types of clouds. Let's see if there are any people that know (care) about clouds as much as I! And if there are, I hope you can forgive me for using he word "species" for some formations that are actually "supplementary features", lol.

Cool! Clouds are fun, this brings me back to learning about them in high school. If you don't mind me asking, what country did you do military service in? You don't need to answer if you feel uncomfortable giving away personal information on the internet.

Ok, that's what I assumed but I just wanted to check. I didn't realize Finland had mandatory service. Anyways, like I said before, great quiz! I think my favorite cloud is the lenticularis--I like how it looks like a spaceship!
