Mammatus Clouds Look Fascinating, Here are 18 Great Examples


Mammatus cloud are known for their interesting appearance, as the clouds seem to have smooth round puffs (sort of like cotton balls), hanging from its underside. The name mammatus is derived from the Latin mamma(meaning “udder” or “breast”). [source]
Mammatus are mots often associated with severe thunderstorms and anvil clouds and often extend from the base of a cumulonimbus cloud; but are known to be found under other cloud types as well.

This Used to be a Fire Hall and Its Doors are Made from Old Fire Hose

This Used to be a Fire Hall and Its Doors are Made from Old Fire Hose


How cool is this? A former fire hall’s doors are made from old fire hose and even the nozzle was incorporated! Located in Brussels, Belgium (62, place du jeu Balle) the space is now home to a restaurant called Pin Pon.
For those curious, the pattern is apparently known as an ‘8 mad weave’ (3 over, 3 under). Below you can see some photos of the door as well as an embedded Google Map street view.
