Scott, I look forward to your pictures and they always make me smile:) Wish I was where you are instead of in the path of Gustave, or whatever they're calling that monster:(

I don't know what <duck> means, but Fay broke up and went north right when it got to Pensacola. We got nothing from it. Now, the entire Gulf Coast is in full emergency mode. We're all sitting ducks, watching and waiting. I'm glad you're safe and tucked in with a beautiful sunset:)

"I don't know what <duck> means"

Speaking of sitting ducks, here comes another hurricane. You had better <duck>.
But on the other hand, it gives you a chance to test those windsurfing skills you've been telling us about ;)

Thanks Lighthouse,

Here's the view looking east, last fall. I assume the sun rises in the east but do you really expect we to wake up before 6a? ;)

But the market opens @ 9:30
I know, I know, real men don't need more than three and a half hours of sleep (=x)-(x=)

I'll let you off this time! :) BTW, many years ago, I invented a drink called the "Tequila Sunset". In this pub here.

I believe the correct spelling of what you're trying to say is 'wuss'.
I expect more from an ex-pat fleeing The Isles because he didn't want to serve in the Falklands.

Nice one Jack.
Is Lighthouse yelling at you? What do you normally do to the pseudo, faux French that are rude to 'real' Brits?

My bad - sorry, I did check back to see if you'd commented, but guess that slipped my eyes!

Full disclosure Aleeve, though I've said it before...most of the local pics I post are from area webcams (including the ones above). that being said I post any new pictures I take of anything interesting. They have included sunrises, sunsets, foliage and many, many cows :)

@whs. Have you ever seen a cloud formation in your area, like the one you posted above, before?

I think it is quite rare. Show it to your local met. reporter/observer/agent. I think he/she may be interested.
