Update: After The Fires

Last month, we reported on the smoke that filled the Columbia River town of Wenatchee in eastern Washington state. During a visit, it looked like this.

Rain, wind and a few high pressure systems later, the fires that blackened foothills of the Cascade Mountains and menaced towns are no longer a threat. This photograph by Sandy Parkhill shows the skies above Wenatchee earlier this week.

    We are anticipating Hurricane Sandy to hit Southern, N.J. Monday afternoon.
    We here on the East End of Long Island hopeful that we’ll just have strong winds, high tides, loss of power for several days. Hopefully, we wont lose too many beautiful old trees and everyone will be safe.
