Speaking of the weather, which I did at length yesterday, I’m a little under it (the weather) so I’m keeping it short tonight.
I just wanted to mention that I’ve added a new section, in case you haven’t stumbled across it yet. If you scroll down right side, you’ll see a section called Weather Links (inspired name, I know!).
Since August through November is considered to be peak hurricane season, I’ve posted a live interactive link to the Hurricane Storm Center. (Thanks, Tom!) You can click here and track Atlantic and Pacific Hurricanes and their projected distance from any land mass.
If you choose US Weather at the top, it tracks all severe weather hazards across the US. You can choose a region or a city.
The second link is to the Weather Wunderground. Here, you can type in your town or any (most) town and see what the weather forecast is, humidity, radar activity etc.. This doesn’t actually work here in Smiley, so I have a phone app for my weather. But it will work in most spots. For example, if you live in Ann Arbor, MI your forecast as I write this (which will be over when you read this) is:

May not have been the best day for yard work…
Just ask Gary!
He’s probably feeling a little under the weather right now, too!
An inexhaustible good nature is one of the most precious gifts of heaven, spreading itself like oil over the troubled sea of thought, and keeping the mind smooth and equable in the roughest weather. ~ Washington Irving
