1st pic: the normal view from my living room. (click on it, it's purty!)
2nd pic: the view when tropical storms sit off the coast and spin. Think: Ophelia, 2 years ago.
3rd pic: today, at the base of the condo building. The Atlantic Ocean is literally lapping up against my building, yet again!
This explains it.
Computer models show it heading right for us here. Imagine my joy! I've got almost two inches of water at the bulkhead of my building as it is.
Stay tuned for more weather panic!
Update: here's a satellite loop. Even the nice dry air to the north isn't daunting the storm's need to start cirulating. It's supposed to form a bit further southeast and then do a slow rumba up the coast of Florida.
Update to the update: Nevermind!
