Of some interest to weather weenies (post dos; this might be gone by tomorrow!)
While no one in the 'know' seems to expect much from this as far as land and humans are concerned, and while it has nothing to do with us on its Westerly course, it's a good reminder to get your seasonal supplies and plans in order. And weather wise, it is interesting (thanks, Suzanne of Finca del Seto for the link!). If you like that sort of thing. And I do.
