Page 6A ' - NEWS Hays Free Press April 27, 2011 Dramatic clouds capture eyes of many BY WES FERGUSON An enormous white cloud roiled the sky above Hays County at sunset on Tuesday; swelling, rolling and transfix- ing the people who watched it from the ground below. People from Austin to New Braunfels dropped everything to marvel and snap photo- graphs as the cloud seemed to billow out upon itself. And it seemed like everybody had a theory about what, exactly, they were witnessing. Was it an atomic bomb? A sky avalanche? Or maybe the rapture? If so, bad news - we're all still standing here. Almost before dissipating, the cloud even had its own Fa- cebook page ,"The Cloud that came over San Marcos, Texas and carried Zeus." The cloud's personal interests included "floating from place to place bringing joy to the peoples of the world." Within hours, more than 500 Facebook users said they liked the cloud. San Marcos Mayor Daniel Guerrero piped in on Face- book: "if little green men ap- pear from a ship and say, 'take II lU me to your leader"' - let me know." Said the cloud: "Thank you San Marcos, America for being such a gracious host! I loved the view of Sewell from up here." Experts said the cloud was a cumulonimbus, which forms PHOTO BY MARGARET BELLOWS a towering mass with a flat base at fairly low altitude and often a flat top, as in thunder- storms. Others said it was a beautiful piece of art, epic, sexy, creepy, orgasmic, and evidence of the hand of God.
