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

Greetings everyone... and groggy-eyed Harry Potter fans. My wonderful groom and I were two of millions who braved the night to be among the first to experience the dazzling wizardry world of Harry Potter. In my little nothing town, they sold out of seats in the 6 stadium theaters, which were showing the Half Blood Prince, 6th movie of the 8 movie series, based on JK Rowling's top selling books. I would estimate 2000 people in Valdosta alone attended the midnight showing of the movie. I have read all 7 of the books, but my wonderful groom has most recently dedicated himself to reading them all (again) just before the release of the flick. He was disappointed because of the disparities between the movie and the book, which is always the case, unfortunately. I thought it was a great way to set up for the next book's associated movies. I was disappointed that much of the character development over the past many movies, seemed to have occurred in vain, as there were just a few keys players in this one, and they seemed to dwell on some of the lesser significant story-lines otherwise.

In weather news, seeing how this is a weather blog... outside of excruciating heat in the south central US, which is causing drought and wildfire... and a ridiculous number of failed launch attempts by the Space Shuttle Endeavor... nothing much exciting is happening. Even the hurricane season has been a bore. We are a month and a half into hurricane season, and we have yet to see a named storm in the Atlantic basin. Water temps are great, but the shear environment is far from conducive. Finally though, it looks like the models are trying to make something of the little bit of disturbed area off of Africa. We'll see if the GFS holds true in coming days.

Have a great day!
