I asked my dad what sort of cloud it was and this is what he had to say:

'It's a nice cloud. A nice smooth cloud. A cumulonimbus, just a very smooth one. It's a very nice cloud. Clouds can be nice. I'd say there's an olympic swimming pool in that cloud*. It's a nice cloud. I like clouds. It's a nice cloud. A pretty cloud.'

It's a nice cloud.

*The average cloud contains enough water to fill a bathtub.

that is the best response to a 'cloud' i've ever heard.

tell you what, there was more than a bathtub in there. we got 70mill in 35 minutes out of that, nearly flooded the damn place. totally, utterly random bizarre cloud!

spot on - the whole thing was rolling so fast i couldn't take a picture of the front because it was blurry.

My dad said it was a cumulonimbus, but idk he started going on about how nice it was.

Whoa, that is a really fucked up cumulonimbus. It's like...the entire THING has begun to 'fringe' like only the top usually does.

Sorry. I study meteorology. :D This is really geeky moment for me. I might have to send this off to my professor if you don't mind.
