Through posts in her newsgroup, Elizabeth Moon is teaching me to recognize the clouds that signal a distant hurricane. Here are some pictures.

What about the sky says hurricane? Is it the high clouds, or the lower clouds, or the combo? Cool thing to know about though.

I think it's the sequence. Any one set of clouds might occur at some point. But the streaks leading to streaks with puffy clouds leading to the shield is the thing.

The clouds at sunset were really cool. I'm going to post them now.

bad weather, bad liberal

A neighborhood guy, an older PUerto Rican man, said that the way the sky looked here tonight means that there is a bad storm coming in the next two or three weeks. What he said was that because the sky was starless but not cloudy that was the clue. And it was true. The sky was like velvet. It looked cleat but there was not a star to be seen. We'll see.

And what about the march on Washington? I am so conflicted about that. I really don't think it's simply a matter of just withdrawing the troops. It's awful to think that more people have to die to clean up the mess that Bush made in Iraq, but it doesn't seem right to go in, blow stuff up, kill and torture people, then leave. I know maybe it won't work if we stay. I know it's a quagmire. I know it's another Vietnam, but I just can't see not trying. If I didn't hate Bush, would I think that the attempts to make a constitution and have elections and everything were a sincere attempt at setting things right?. I don't know. Anyway, I didn't go to DC. I wish it had been a generalized "Fkuc Bush" demo, but I just felt wrong about going when it was specifically a bring the troops home now thing. Although I kind of wish I had gone. I'm a bad liberal.
