The storm is encountering problems and may have pulled in dry air. Add in increasing wind shear and Dorian will probably be a remnant low in a day or two.

Here’s the link for NOAA’s latest satellite images.

Like I Said


As promised, a picture of my mailbox with the lichen growing on it. It has a hell of a grip on the mailbox, which is really annoying given all the messing around I had to do to get the numbers to stick to it.

Note: a cat will show up later, if I can find one willing to come out of hiding.
