Saw the Shuttle & ISS! Wow! That was cool!
In Nashville, not Greece. :) If my calculations are correct, the Shuttle and ISS should appear to go right over it from this angle.
At 11am, NHC says microwave imagery shows a single eyewall, better organization. Dean may already be a Category 5, but NHC is holding off till next recon flight confirms it. … I'm at a rest stop
east of Nashville. Hence the photo.
As of the 5pm advisory, Dean is "scraping" the south coast of Jamaica. The eye is 50 miles south of Kingston, moving west. No change in strength. … We, meanwhile, are at Babies R Us. And Becky is uber cute. :)
At 2pm, NHC says Dean is still at 145 mph; pressure is back up to 930 mb. The eye is 80 mi. southeast of Kingston, Jamaica, moving WNW.
Good grief. Fox News just called Erin a “powerful storm” that will “pack a punch” when it “slams” Texas. No wonder people get cynical!
We're in Dublin, Virginia, and have decided to continue onward for a wee-hours arrival in Knoxville. I'm taking over driving, so there'll be no more blog updates. :) The photo is from yesterday at the Floomer cabin, when I caught a rock bass. (The hand pictured is my dad’s.)
The Skyline Drive was beautiful -- and we saw a bear! Now, on toward Roanoke, and maybe all the way to Knoxville. We shall see.
Revealed on a bathroom-stall wall at a gas station in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. I finally see the light! Heh.
