Hurricane Sandy II

Hurricane Sandy is shaping up to be quite a storm. Many models are converging to show Sandy making landfall in New England on Tuesday. Very dangerous - pay attention to the forecasts if you're going anywhere near the East Coast next week.

50th Anniversary of Columbus Day Storm

In 1962 there was a massive storm. Likely the biggest cyclone to hit the lower-48 this century. It was really, really windy, damaging, & 46 people died.

Winds from the N & NW are blowing the smoke from the fires to the east away from us, increasing visibility. Really impressive change in the photos of Rainier from a local webcam (images are 4 days apart).
