N.C. Drenched by Tropical Storm’s Remains

Radar image, 5:45 p.m. EDT Monday. Click for live radarTo the left is a radar image from our home page’s radar, taken at 5:45 p.m. EDT Monday…. At this point, there is a flash flood warning for the Richmond, VA area. Latest watches and warnings for Virginia here and the entire region here

Check out the Wunderground regional radar. A plethora of radar and webcam images are in our Richmond, VA page.

Speaking of Richmond, that city is the most visited page of the day. My former co-worker Ginny Bonner, who just moved from North Texas to a suburb of Richmond (near the fine community of Short Pump), would be so proud! This may be the result of her husband, who I thank for adding this site to his company’s Intranet! I hope all is well and not too watered down over there!

Storm Now, Baby Boom Later?

Gothamist Weather noticed a story I linked to a couple of days ago about hospital workers claiming a summer baby boom was a result of Hurricane Isabel. Gothamist posted an insightful reply to the article here … So, do you think some localized baby booms are the result of natural disasters … or even a night or two without power, or is it most likely just a myth?

Earth At Night Picture: Great As Desktop Background

World aglow: Look for your city in this Earth at night picture, [giant high-res image here]. This was Sunday’s Astronomy Picture of the Day. The high-resolution digital version of the image is also available here or here. It’s a great image to use as a background for your desktop. I took the hi-res JPEG and cropped it to North America at 1024×768 pixels. I might make this my background at work as well…
