I'm going to keep the blog short today. I went out tonight at sunset and got some great pictures of thunderheads in Orange County.
On the tropical front we have Tropical Storm Irene named today, our 9th storm of the season. The average number of storms at this point in the year is normally 2, so we're on an amazing pace. Irene is a pretty pathetic looking storm at this point being taken apart by westerly shear and dry air. A tropical storm for Bermuda may be the only threat with Irene, as we said a few days ago.
Enjoy the pics. (Click on them to get a bigger copy)
