Sno-Caps512 viewsRemember the Nestle Candy you used to get at the Movies? Well, that's what came to mind when thinking of a name for this image.

Pyrocumulus186 viewsWhile I'm not sure this word exists in a Dictionary, it is used commonly used when talking about fires or volcanic eruptions. It is caused by the hot air and smoke combining with the moisture which induces a convection which carries the smoke and ash up to altitudes of 20,000 feet or more.
