My uncle referred me to this site. I've never seen  clouds like this and must 
indeed be rare. Go to the below website...it's worth  the look.

>> The clouds are called  Mammatus clouds and there's a link on this URL that 
 tells about them. They do not precede a  tornado, or fortell a storm, but 
are formed when the air is already saturated  with rain droplets and/or ice 
crystals and begins to sink.  The worst of  the storm is usually over when these 
kind of clouds are seen.  They are  quite rare, but really beautiful. <<
