A few years ago the United Nations put out a series of stamps commemorating the World Meteorological Organization. They’re framed and on my wall.
Now the US Postal Service has put out a series of stamps depicting clouds and they too are destined for my office wall.
When it comes to clouds there are groups and sub-groups. These stamps take it to such specificity that I couldn’t quibble with any of the descriptions without a textbook in hand. Trust me, I’ll never look in the sky and say, “There’s a stratocumlus undulatus.”
I have no idea how long these stamps will be available at the post office, but they’re sure to go fast. They’re pretty – and pretty sells.
