INSTEAD OF HURRICANE SEASON.

The past week has not been good for the spirits, with  a big low pressure system parked over Rockford since sometime last Friday or Saturday.

The system did offer some play value for weather enthusiasts.

On such days, one is grateful for a retractable roof at Miller Park.

I'm told that we were subject to the tender mercies of two different low pressure systems.



That system is pretty well-defined.  I failed to capture a screen shot of what it looked like earlier in the week, when the south tail tapped into a flow of moisture from the Gulf.  Get some wood, build it eighty cubits by thirty cubits ...

But, this being the upper Midwest in the fall, there's at least one more run of glorious sun and cool evenings in store.
