The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
-Job 37:15

Following in each other's footsteps...

It's crazy how these tropical systems have just lined up like this... and yes, that is another wave moving off the African coast behind Josephine. Ay Caramba...! Currently, I am keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Hanna, as she seems to be finishing up her little loop-dee-loop down near Haiti, awaiting that north northwest turn that all the models have been expecting. If she doesn't hurry up and get out of there, the almost hurricane Ike is liable to take her out.

He is actually on course for heading to Hanna's current location. Run, Hanna, Run!

Tropical Depression Gustav is still spinning up trouble over in the Louisiana area, with a tornado actually killing a couple during the night. How awful! Actually, there were 20 tornadoes reported yesterday resulting from the remnant low pressure system formerly associated with Gustav! 20 tornadoes! That'll boost that trend graphic. Sure enough...In closing, I would like to share this morning's beautiful sky with you. What a nice treat! 5PM Update:

Incidentally, I abbreviate my hurricane tracking chart... TD 10, TS H, TS J... now we have H I!!! Hi, HI!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. You've been a busy bee keeping up with all this storm activity. TD Gustav has made his way to Arkansas and has given us quite a bath, but not near as much rain as has fallen in other areas. My heart goes out to the folks who are really flooded. My gauge registered 6" in about 24 hours, and for us that is a lot. Have picked up almost another inch in the last 5 hours and it's still raining.

  2. Wow, amazing activity out there.

    Love the photo of the clouds...from another cloud lover.

    (still looking for graph paper)

  3. Pat, try to keep your head above water. We are still recovering in some places down in S GA from the incredible amounts of rain that Fay dumped on us, so I know how it is. Glad you're getting some rain...

    Beth, You love clouds? Speaking of activity out there... Gustav is headed your way. Better get that boat ready. (You can print graphing paper off the internet.)

  4. Great shots, and such an informative a blog. Impressive.:))

  5. Interesting as always! My daughter lost some of her pecan trees in Wayne County. Sadly we got very little rain here.
