    Oh, and speaking of the unspeakable evil that is the weather channel... They recently updated the Storm Radar app (which was the half-a-ssed remake of the brilliant Weather Underground Storm app). I read the release notes before updating and it said they had 15 new PREMIUM Layers available. I thought, "I don't like the way 'premium' sounds." So I opened the app up before updating and counted the number of layers. There was something like 18.

    I thought, "There's no way they are doubling. They must be putting everything behind a paywall." 12 hours later I checked the reviews. Sure enough, everything but basic radar was behind a paywall. You want storm tracks? $3.99 a month. You want HD radar? Pony up. Satellite cloud cover? Paywall. Weather alerts? Four bones. Severe weather maps? Pay up. Anything that was remotely useful is now behind a paywall.

    They figuratively knee-capped the app when they shutdown the old app. Now they decided they're done playing and collected its head.

    **** those monsters. They took one of the best grassroots scientific communities and put it in the dryer with a bag of diarrhea.

    This movie is so bad and good at the same time. Also the only time JLC was s-xy.

    I was away, so I'm just getting to this now, but the Gulf Stream is marginally warm enough that far north. It's rare, but it has happened before.

    Yesterday was the first day of the school year for my nieces. 2 years after Hurricane Harvey, they are still riding charter buses (because Houston didn't have enough school buses) to their temporary school while their elementary school is rebuilt.

    How much long does it take for them to finish the school?

    Latest models are showing Dorion as a 100MPH hurricane as it approaches FLA.

    Given how very, very wrong they have been relative to the approach to Puerto Rico, I'd not really put much into that, yet. It was supposed head north far west of where it's actually doing it.
