I saw those clouds in "The Ten Commandents". Did the sea part for you?

That is one awesome front. Being that close to shore must have been intimidating.

we were on anchor and went down for a nap on a clear, sunny day 5kts breeze from the north and woke to see this pampero approaching from the south at 45kts! pic was taken just after raising anchor and heading out to open water--the next two hours were dicey. went from 5kt to 65kt winds in about a minute. when we got to Florianopolis proper the next day the damage was substantial and the papers touted it as the worst storm in a half-century.

after talking to some sailors in Buenos Aires a couple months later and relaying the story one said of the pampero, aslo known as a "cigar cloud": "Ahh, un pampero, it's when the cigar smokes you!

I don't see a cigar, but I clearly see two eyes, a nose and a mouth full of teeth!
That is one scary picture.
